The “Psyche-pop riffs” of Stockport’s Blossoms play Inverness in February.

Blossoms LogoManchester Evening News describe them as having a “Merseybeat-esque pop sensibility ” and as “a band clearly not lacking in imagination – the sort of imagination that might well restore your faith in guitar bands.”

Signed to Skeleton Key (home to The Coral) the band have supported the likes of The Rifles, The Charlatans, Starsailor and the Courteneers

Blossoms define themselves as ” Ethereal Nostalgic Sonance” which seems a bit of a mouthful. Checkout the likes of ‘You Pulled a Gun'(below) and debut single ‘Blow’ which was released in October.Next single,’Cut Me I’ll Bleed’ which has courted many plaudits from the likes of Penny Black Music, is released in March 2015.

The band comprises of Tom Ogden (vocals and guitar), Charlie Salt (bass & backing vocals), Josh Dewhurst (lead guitar), Joe Donovan (drums) & Myles Kellock (keys).

Blossoms play Hootananny on March the 28th. Tickets available on-line from Wednesday.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at
