Stockport’s finest export, Blossoms, reveal new single ‘The Keeper’ for the band’s upcoming third album Foolish Loving Spaces.

Following up on June’s single ‘Your Girlfriend’, which is on the ICM Sounds of 2019 Playlist, the band also revealed a run of tour dates set for March 2020.

Produced by the band’s consistent and talented team of James Skelly and Rich Turvey at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool, frontman Tom Ogden‘s increasingly direct lyrical range turns album three into a romantic page-turner of light and shade.

Meanwhile its divergent moods are supplied by Myles Kellock’s piano and keyboard lines, careering from urgent stabs of TV game show-theme synth to more classic, rolling notes.

The record’s multi-instrumental colour and widescreen sound is provided by pedal steel / lead guitarist Josh Dewhurst, while Joe Donovan on drums and Charlie Salt on bass bring fluidly danceable grooves throughout, complemented on occasion by a wall of gospel harmony.
