Manchester band Blossoms stopped by the BBC’s Radio 1 Live Lounge to put their own spin on Billie Eilish hit single ‘Bury A Friend’.

The indie pop band, who were born out of Stockport, have seen a meteoric rise in popularity following the release of their 2016 self-titled debut album which ended up being one the twelve albums nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.

The band quickly followed up their debut record with the release of Cool Like You in 2018 and, as their avid fanbase demands more material, Blossoms are putting the finishing touches on their third studio album. Despite excitement around the new record, the band are remaining tight-lipped on the progress: “It’s hard to say really,” lead singer Tom Ogden told NME.

He added: “It’s early days so I don’t want to say too much, but there are more guitars on it. On the second album we went down more of a synth route. This time I went back to writing on the guitar and songs just started falling out of me.”

The band stopped by Radio 1 to perform their most recent single ‘I’ve Seen The Future’, a track they released back in April as part of a special Record Store Day issue. After the rendition of their song, Blossoms followed the Live Lounge format and performed a cover version of another artist’s song.
