Blossoms have revealed their brand new self-directed video for ‘Honey Sweet’. Taken from their self-titled debut album, ‘Honey Sweet’ was one of the standout tracks on the record and a fan favourite live – NME described it as “an homage to 80’s funk electropop”.
Inspired by 80’s cinema the video sees the band cycling around their hometown of Stockport in search of the Delorean as seen in Back to the Future.
On making the video, Tom Ogden said:
‘We like to dabble at filmmaking ourselves when we can, so we jumped at the chance to make our own video again. We turned Fitzpatrick Scaffolding to Pinewood Studios for a day, think ET meets Strangers Things shot in Stockport, written, shot, directed and edited ourselves.’

Blossoms’ eponymous debut album spent two weeks at No.1 when it was released in August – the first time a debut album has spent more than one week at No.1 from launch since 2014. The record, now available in a deluxe format with ten extra tracks, has amassed sales of almost 100 000 copies.
In testament to the huge success in 2016, Blossoms have been nominated for both ‘Best Breakthrough Act’ at the BRIT Awards and ‘Best New Act’ at the VO5 NME Awards this year. The band will also be embarking on the NME Awards Tour this March, which includes a headline show at London’s Roundhouse on March 23rd. Supporting Blossoms on the tour will be Cabbage and Rory Wynne.
The band recently announced their biggest headline show to date at Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl on July 8th and will be joined by very special guests The Coral as well as Rory Wynne and Touts.
