Get up close and get in there to see the Stockport lads play songs from their brand new album Foolish Loving Spaces
What do you do if you want to mark the release of your third album? Well, you come into Radio X and play some of the songs live on air, that's what you do. And maybe, if you're Blossoms, you play your brand new single The Keeper.
Frontman Tom Ogden told Gordon Smart recently: "The Keeper started off with a piano riff and it just came to me at once. I got the chords for the chorus and it was all there with the melody. It was just one of them that fell from the sky, as you hear other songwriters say!"
Stockport's finest released their third album Foolish Loving Spaces last week and came into see Gordon on the Radio X Evening Show to talk about their rise to fame and the packed year they have a head of them, including appearances at TRNSMT, Truck, Kendal Calling and Victorious Festivals.
The band - Tom Ogden, Charlie Salt, Josh Dewhurst, Joe Donovan and Myles Kellock - came prepared, too.
They brought along twelve-string guitars, keyboards a couple of drums and even a pedal steel guitar for that all-important bit of sonic colour. The setlist includes the big tune from the new LP, Your Girlfriend - a psychodrama about what it's like to fancy your mate's girlfriend.
You can get right in the thick of the action and see the results of the session right here. It's like you're in the room with them! You can check out one of the new songs, If You Think This Is Real Life here too.
