BLOSSOMS: superstars in the making Wednesday, 10 August 2016 21:15 by madseason

Blossoms is a British quintet formed in Stockport, a town just outside of Manchester, England, in 2013. After some lucky singles and EPs, the band released its debut full-length last Friday, August 5, through Virgin EMI Records: it's simply titled Blossoms and was produced by Rich Turvey (Clean Cut Kid, VITAMIN, The Misper) and James Skelly (The Coral, She Drew The Gun, The Sundowners).

Blossoms' sound can be described as classic pop-rock with Arctic Monkeys influences, with some moody organ atmospherics, synthesised hooks and traces of white funk a la Level 42. Add to that frontman Tom Ogden's delivery, that occupies the space between Richard Ashcroft (The Verve) and Alex Turner, of the aforementioned Monkeys, and you get the picture.

The album is chock-full of great tracks that can work great both on radio and in arenas. Stream the whole record on Spotify and watch the videos for the many amazing singles (At Most A Kiss, Charlemagne, Getaway and more) included on the Vevo YouTube channel of the band.

Adelitas Way - Getaway

I think that most of you already know Las Vegas hard rockers Adelitas Way, so I'll keep it short: I doubt that you will find a better hard rock/active rock album this year than their new one, Getaway. Sure they haven't an original sound, but who cares when you have all these anthemic rock hits collected in one record?

Getaway was crowd funded by fans on the band's pledge music campaign. It was recorded in Chicago at Groove master studios with award-winning producer Johnny K (3 Doors Down, Saint Asonia, Finger Eleven, Plain White T's) and released last week on The Fuel Music.

Getaway features all the five tracks from last year's Deserve This EP, plus 6 new great songs, including the new single Bad Reputation. Stream the whole album clicking on the image.
