Stockport band Blossoms has used their home town of Stockport as the setting for their Honey Sweet video.
Blossoms new video for Honey Sweet is a love letter to Stockport featuring some of Stockport’s finest and best loved landmarks including the town’s iconic Market Place and Robinsons Brewery.
Blossoms, whose name derives from the popular Robinsons Brewery’s Blossom pub on the A6 in Stockport, are currently enjoying the European leg of their world tour before taking off for Canada and the USA in April.
The Honey Sweet video takes the band back to 70’s Stockport as the five local lads ride around on ‘Choppers’, every boy’s drean bike in the day, map in hand in search of a mystical machine.
Since 2014 they have gone from practicing in a scaffolding yard near to Edgeley Park to playing over 200 gigs, including a sell-out crowd in June at Glastonbury, with the band continuing to proudly declare “we’re Blossoms from Stockport” at every show they play.
This year the band have been nominated for ‘Best British Breakthrough Act’ at the forthcoming BRITs – VOTE HERE – and Best New Artist at the NME Awards.
The bands front man and singer, Tom Ogden, 22, said:
“We obviously want to be as successful as we can be, that’s always been our aim and to be nominated for a BRIT award is something none of us were expecting so soon.
“We’re up against some tough competition but how amazing would it be to win the British Breakthrough Act and to say ‘we’re Blossoms from Stockport’ on stage at the 02 next month. Fingers crossed.”
Blossoms released their No1 debut album last August just months after famously knocking Adele off the top of the I-tunes charts. Robinsons celebrated by brewing a new ale – Charlemagne – in honour of the Stockport band.
