Blossoms

Manchester band, Blossoms, who were inspired by 80s indie, said:

We’re very proud to have been invited to be ambassadors for National Album Day. The album is really important to us, not just as a band but as full time music obsessives. Through our parents we’ve grown up listening to so many great albums, most of our parents were teenagers in the 1980s so we were exposed to so many great albums from that era. The Smiths in particular for the fact they made 4 albums in 4 years, that’s very inspiring as a songwriter. The video game Grand Theft Auto Vice City had a brilliant 80s soundtrack, which had so many great songs on it, it made you then go back and discover great albums like The Human League’s ‘Dare’ and Luther Vandross’ ‘Never Too Much’. The album really has been the main influence in the way that we work and the kind of work we look to produce, it gives us so much scope for ideas & experimentation. I tend to write about my life and normally what’s happened over the previous 12/18 months. It’s not easy putting all that into just one song so that’s another thing I personally love about making albums.”
