EDITORS’ NOTES

Blossoms make a romantic, earnest form of melodic rock, and their debut album is a collective raid on their formative influences, from ‘90s British indie (“My Favourite Room”) to ‘80s electro-pop (“Honey Sweet”). “Texia” is all yearning emotion over propulsive bass, while “Blow” is a doomed romance with a Doors-like sulk. Their range is clear in the jump from the featherlight sparkle of “Charlemagne” to the dark glam stomp of “At Most a Kiss,” showcasing a band in thrall to the expressive possibilities of pop.
