Calling all indie pop fans! If you are a fan of Oasis, The Doors or Teenage Fanclub, you need to check out rising indie pop band called Blossoms. Blossoms are an English band that formed in 2013. The Stockport five-piece band take their name from the Blossoms public house. They were on the BBC’s Sound of new music list for 2016 and they finished in fourth place.
Blossoms have already sold out the 2,000-capacity Manchester Albert Hall, they have recently played one of Glastonbury’s biggest stages and supported The Stone Roses as well.
The band is undoubtedly in bloom.
Blossoms have released a video for their song titled Charlemagne a few days ago. Charlemagne is the title track from their EP and will also be the first track on their long-awaited debut album which is set to be released on 5 August 2016.
You put love in my head”
The lead singer, Tom Ogden, demands your attention with opening lyrics of Charlemagne.
The song is very catchy and we bet that its bouncy beat will put love in your head. Chances are you will not be able to get rid of Charlemagne’s tune all day. This mesmerising beat has the ability to make you smile and uplift your downbeat mood anytime you need it.

Charlemagne video is relatively short, however, it is a beautifully shot mysterious masterpiece. ”And the river always flows so if you go, I will know,” sings Tom Ogden. It seems like the whole video copies the flowing movement of the river. Men in black and a mysterious girl in white in Charlemagne video perfectly match the atmosphere of the song.

What are Blossoms’ plans for the future?
