INDIE pop music will be in full bloom in Coventry when one of the most hotly tipped bands for 2016 headline at the Kasbah on Friday (March 4).

After making it to number four on the influential BBC Sound of 2016 list, Blossoms – a five strong band from Stockport – are set to get Coventry clubbers rocking.

The quintet first announced their name to the world in 2014 with a declaration on their website stating that they wanted to be heard by everyone.

Their growing followers of critics and fans is now gathering pace following the release of their debut four track EP – At Most A Kiss – which mixes shimmering synths, crashing drums and a catchy bass line.

The indie outfit have already been included in Spotify’s Spotlight on 2016, MTV Brand New for 2016 and iTunes Music New Artists 2016.

Performing at venues stretching across the UK, the release of their debut album is expected to drop later this year.

Amarjit Kullar, of the Kasbah, said the club is delighted to be welcoming a band which is already showing great promise in the short time since forming.

He added: “Even though they have only been performing and creating music for two years, Blossoms have already had a big impact and we predict big things for them in 2016.

“Therefore we are delighted to be bringing them to Coventry for their first performance in the city and we anticipate their pop influenced sound will be a huge hit with the city’s clubbers.

“Unfortunately due to the tragic events in Sweden, support will no long be coming from indie band Viola Beach.

“However, in their place comes The Vryll Society, a Liverpudlian five piece who’s psychedelic guitar jams will be sure to fill the dancefloor.”
