Blossoms playing live

Following last week’s arrival of their fourth studio album, Ribbon Around The Bomb, and ahead of the premiere of their new film of the same name, Stockport’s Blossoms have shared a video for a stripped-back version of their song, Everything About You.

Directed by Edwin Burdis, who has previously worked on visuals for Arctic Monkeys, the Ribbon Around The Bomb film acts as a companion piece to the band's new record. It will premiere at a hometown event at Stockport’s Plaza Theatre tonight (3rd May), where the band will also play the whole of their new record live. 

Blossoms have given fans a peek at what they can expect from the new film, with a paired-back, acoustic version of Everything About You.

The video, which was recorded in the Plaza Theatre, sees frontman Tom Ogden sitting in the stalls, singing: “Don’t you ever wonder? / Don’t you ever wonder, is this what life is for?”

On making the film, the singer previously said: “What a joy it was making this film with Edwin Burdis. It was also great to work with my cousin Daniel Rigby, a BAFTA award-winning actor, who brilliantly plays The Writer who is trying to put on his new play, Ribbon Around The Bomb.”

He added: “Edwin’s unique style and vision really took the film to surreal corners, using editing techniques I’ve never come across before! The outcome is a quirky, dream-like film that we absolutely love.”

A week before they dropped their new album, Blossoms visited The Chris Evans Breakfast Show with Sky to play an amazing set from the top of the tower, including recent single The Sulking Poet, which is on the record.

Blossoms are performing a number of UK live shows this summer, including supporting The Killers, and headline appearances at Y Not and Truck Festival.
