Rising Sydney Star The Blossom drops a brand new hot pop track ‘Bored Baby Blues’
Listen Now To – THE BLOSSOM – BORED BABY BLUES
Sydney-raised, LA-based, The Blossom,today shares a patiently simmering new track ‘Bored Baby Blues‘,furthering her blend of bedroom pop, dreamy shoegaze, and skittering, trap-influenced production.
The chorus on ‘Bored Baby Blues’ begs to explode yet always pulls back, holding out until the last minute when distorted guitars and choral backing vocals rupture the song’s pensive yearning. Listen and watch HERE.
The accompanying ‘Bored Baby Blues‘ video brims with nostalgia, almost making it feel like a private documentary and tapping into the same grainy, cut-and-paste aesthetic as her recent ‘Wish You Well‘ video. The Blossom again partnered with NY-based creative and editor, Dani Aphrodite, for the visual; this time while quarantined on opposite sides of the world.
Says The Blossom, “The night I filmed this footage to send to [Dani], I had finished my 2-week solitary quarantine after flying from LA to SYD, and it was the first day I’d been reunited with my family or even left the bedroom. I went for a bike ride and a joy ride with my dad when the sun was setting and he filmed me on his iPhone. As I felt the rush of the wind, hanging out the window of the car like a dog, there was still some sort of lonesome and uncertain energy surrounding me. Nonetheless, I felt “free” for that whole couple of hours we biked around my childhood neighborhood, now quiet and dead-still”.
Produced with Warp Publishing‘s Jessica Winter (The Horrors, Gorillaz), ‘Bored Baby Blues’ is one of several songs born from Lily’s recent studio residency with Future Classic.It is the last single to be shared from her forthcoming debut EP, Bleeding Buttercup, a promising body of work that’s both romantic and cinematic: HD, widescreen with the static cutting through.
