Blossoms collaborate with CMAT and Jungle

Blossoms have been working with CMAT and Jungle on their upcoming album.

Blossoms have been working on their first independent album on their own label, ODD-SK Records, a follow-up to 2022’s Ribbon Round a Bomb, since leaving Virgin EMI.

And this time around, the band has been more open to working with others, including the Irish songwriter and electronic music group, made up of producers Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland.

Frontman Tom Ogden told BBC 6 Music’s Indie Forever’s Nathan Shepherd: “This album […] it’s the most we’ve spread our wings in terms of collaboration.

“I wrote the songs, took them to the guys and then we went in with [James] Skelly in Liverpool. Whereas this time we’ve been working with different people. We haven’t really talked about who we’ve worked with as such […] We’ve worked a little bit with CMAT, who we’re big fans of, and we’ve worked with Jungle, who we’re big fans of. […] Like CMAT, I heard their stuff this time last year when we were on tour in a record shop in Brighton and I was like ‘who is that’ so yeah and then I just listened to their music and was a big fan so we then got in touch and kind of did some stuff over the summer but again we don’t know what’s going to be on the record.

Tom recently pointed out the importance of Manchester music when speaking about their latest single ‘To Do List (After The Breakup)’.

As he explained: “We initially kicked the song around as a band in a way that we did when we first started – all in the round together in our rehearsal room.

“It’s something we haven’t really been able to do for a long time, but it felt so natural and euphoric for the five of us!

“Some of the song’s DNA is in the local Manchester bands we grew up listening to from our parents’ record collections, bands like New Order and James.

It was inspired by a poem of the same name by Rupi Kaur, which “captured the feeling of heartbreak so well”.
