Blossoms - I Can't Stand It (Radio X Session)

Here's another chance to see the Stockport band's excellent session in the Radio X basement studio.

Blossoms have had a spectacular career so far - three number one albums, including 2022's Ribbon Around The Bomb.

Back in April 2018, the Stockport band had just eleased their second LP Cool Like You, which included hits such as Charlemagne and Blown Rose.

Blossoms came into the Radio X Session studio to perform two tracks from Cool Like You: the singles I Can’t Stand It and There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls).

Speaking to Radio X about the difference between their first and second album, frontman Tom Ogden said: "We think it's more of an accomplished body of songs and it sounds more like a whole album, whereas the first one was like singles built up over three and a half years."

On Cool Like You's "soundtrack-y" sound, he added: "It's a lot more upbeat this album. We consciously did that with the songs, because we wanted to take the live set up a level."

Blossoms also played a banger from their self-titled debut album, the 2015 single Charlemagne.

Radio X also learnt that the band have an unofficial bet on a very touchy subject...

Who from Blossoms will go bald first?
