EDITORS’ NOTES

Emma de Goede and Gerrit Matthee’s Bloom is a delightfully dreamy alternative pop debut. Over eight carefully arranged tracks, the Cape Town duo’s cinematic compositions explore themes of resilience (“Hindsight”), displacement (“Urban Wilderness”) and how the world looks that much better when you're standing next to someone you adore (“Nomadic Love”)—all underpinned by tinkling electro-pop melodies. Their debut single, “Break & Fall”, mixed by lauded producer-engineer Johnny De Ridder (Fokofpolisiekar, Die Heuwels Fantasties) is the soaringly anthemic first offering from one of the better pop releases of 2018.
