British rock band BLOSSOMS has shared a music video for their song "Ode To NYC," two months before the release of their new album.
Ahead of the release of BLOSSOMS' album "Ribbon Around The Bomb" (April 29), the British alternative band has shared the project's latest single, "Ode To NYC." Directed by Edwin Burdis, the clip is reminiscent of the graffiti and other forms of art that still grace New York City.
Speaking about the song itself, the BLOSSOMS frontman shared, "Ode To NYC is a love letter to my favorite city, and I imagine running through it with my wife. It also feels like a love letter to her. "I'm enjoying West 56th Street, we're going to go sing Sinatra," refers to watching a tribute at the Carnegie Club, which is on West 56th Street. This club is like something out of a Scorsese movie.
The band will perform at Irving Plaza on August 16, one of two North American tours announced in conjunction with the release of "Ode To NYC." On August 18, BLOSSOMS will take the stage at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles. Tickets are now available for sale on the official BLOSSOMS website.
While on tour in Mexico in 2019, I visited Frida Kahlo's home. Looking at her paintings in the exhibition, someone described one of them as a "ribbon around a bomb." I immediately thought it was a great title for a song and album because of the images it conjured up in my head," Ogden explained the title of the project. I thought about how many things in life can be described as ribbon around a bomb in the sense that we humans often dress things up with darkness underneath.
