2015 proved to be something of a seminal year for Stockport five-piece Blossoms. Hotly tipped for this year the band have today been announced as number four on the BBC Sound of 2016 list as well as being included in Spotify’s Spotlight on 2016, MTV Brand New for 2016, iTunes/Apple Music New Artists 2016 and tipped by several other sites and publications for more success in 2016.
Blossoms will release their brand new EP ‘At Most A Kiss’ on February 19th. James Skelly and Rich Turvey produced the EP at Parr St. Studios in Liverpool. The emphatic, fast paced title track sees Blossoms channel their unique pop-rock sound with shimmering synths, crashing drums, a catchy bass line and Tom Ogden’s now unmistakable vocals.
‘At Most A Kiss’ is available now as a free download for anyone who pre-orders the EP. Watch the video below:

They also toured relentlessly and sold out several venues including shows at The Village Underground in London and The Ritz in Manchester.
Blossoms’ last EP went straight to No.1 in the iTunes Alternative chart and included the eponymous title track ‘Charlemagne’ which was on the A-List at 6 Music and the Radio 1’s BBC Introducing playlist. It was also included in Radio X’s top 50 Tracks of 2015 as well as going straight onto their daytime playlist.
