Young fivesome Blossoms was founded in Stockport, a town just outside of Manchester, back in 2013. Ever since, the band led by Tom Ogden have enjoyed a meteoric rise. Britpop, eighties new wave, and yes, even ABBA: Blossoms consume any style like sweet cake and make it fashionable again. If one contemporary band continues the romance and verve of British rock – after The Smiths, Blur, The Stone Roses and Oasis – then it is undoubtedly this bunch. In 2016 Blossoms was already a cherished highlight at Best Kept Secret, and this year they’re back with a fresh supply of infectious indie hits.
