Spotlight!: Blossoms


This Stockport 5 piece has been topping lists around the world of “acts to watch in 2016”. They are the most hotly tipped indie band in the world and the stage is set for them to skyrocket to the top.

From the feel good indie pop of the title track, to the off-the-wall R&B of ‘Across The Moor’, to the sinister undertones of ‘Polka Dot Bones’, it is a release overflowing with promise.

Fans of infectious indie should make a note in their diaries as Blossoms latest EP ‘At Most A Kiss’ is out 19th February.
