About: After receiving critical acclaim for their debut single Foreign Nature, Sheffield’s Blossomer now return with the release of their enchanting new EP HLLW, out now via Instant Karma. The band was formed in Sheffield in 2012 when Crabbe moved into his student halls and discovered Rob Eatough (bass, keys, drum machines) and Alex McKay (guitar) blasting out The Beatles from their flat. Their mutual love of both traditional rock and electronica allowed them to discover their own unique sound with no drummer necessary. Blossomer have been making waves on the Northern circuit for a while now, having regularly played at Tramlines festival, as well as supporting the likes of Slow Club and Gengahrr to name a few.
What Hidden Herd say: ‘TIME_SLIPS_AWAY’s dark intro sets a brooding scene for the track, before delicately littering intricate percussive layers that give a wide sense of space and a deeply palpable atmosphere.
