Video of the Moment #2283: Blossoms

By on Sunday, 5th February 2017 at 10:00 am

Stockport, Greater Manchester’s Blossoms already have a busy first half of 2017 all lined up. A few days ago, they announced their first North American tour. It includes cities on the West Coast before appearances at American music festivals Coachella in April plus Governor’s Ball in New York and Firefly in Delaware in June. To celebrate their exciting news stateside, the band have unveiled a brand new self-directed video for ‘Honey Sweet’. It’s a cut from their self-titled debut album that was released last summer on Virgin EMI. (Want to read my review of the LP? You can do so through here.)

To give this promo a throwback feel, the guys take a step back 30 years ago to 1987, the land of rotary phones and denim jackets and when people still actually used a foldout A-Z map to plan their trips instead of Google Maps. What’s even better about this video is that if you’ve never actually visited Stockport, the band cycle through their hometown, past the Stockport County AFC, the town’s market hall and Robinsons’ brewery, aka the home of Elbow‘s beer build a rocket boys! That is, before they make it out to the wilderness and meet up with an icon of the times. You’ll be surprised if you watch it through to the end. Watch it below.
