Blossoms - Ribbon Around The Bomb

Blossoms just keep getting better and better. Their fourth album is full of the bouncy, feel good indie tracks that we expect from a Blossoms release, but with the addition of powerful string sections that give their music a new depth of emotion. Jangling, Johnny Marr-esque guitar lines contrast with this cinematic sound to show just how wide their influences span, while their lyrics reach newly contemplative territories that gives us an insight into how they’ve matured during their nine-year run. The band has reached a perfect balance of knowing what they do best and allowing themselves to grow musically. LT
