Blossoms – Rough Trade East

On the 1st of February we were lucky enough to have seen Blossoms perform an intimate acoustic set live at Rough Trade East in London. The show commemorated the release of the band’s latest album, Foolish Loving Spaces. The band treated us to the new album (bar My Vacant Days) and even took a request at the end, finishing the set with a crowd favourite: There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls). From the excitement in the queue to the appreciation from the band when signing our albums, the evening was overall pretty incredible!

The show was especially relaxed and the interaction with the crowd further illuminated the friendly, down to earth nature of the band. It was also great seeing their tour manager, Wolfie, getting involved on stage by playing percussion! Looking around mid-performance, it was clear to see how much love there already is for this new album.

The signing process was particularly memorable due to the chattiness of the band (as well as Joe’s infectious laugh). It was heartwarming to see the genuine appreciation they have for their fans.

As third albums go, Blossoms have created something spectacular. It’s an incredible display of their talent and cultivates the genre-bending versatility of the band. We’re looking forward to the tour and can’t wait to see where this new album will take them.
