If there is one thing Danes know, it is how to party. Frenetic energy can be found at dorms, universities, Friday-bars, and housewarmings alike. Copenhagen natives off bloom transforms those frenetic, Danish party vibes into a soundtrack that would suit any occasion (preferably party-related). Nylon says of them, “They sound like a perfect love child between Flume and Sleigh Bells: melodic, noisy, and sensual,” while Fader goes on to say that the trio, “make punchy, radio-ready songs with a genuine streak of could-care-less attitude.”
Following the release of the feisty new single “Shut Up and Let Me Walk” and the Hudson Mohawke-produced “Rockefe11a (F**k That To Be Honest),” off bloom has announced the upcoming release of a new 5-track EP — Lover Like Me is due out on October 13 via Capitol Records. The EP contains the aforementioned tracks plus three new offerings, including the glittering four-to-the-floor “Golden Dreams”.
“This EP is about love, sex, frustration, intoxication and of course loyalty, loyalty, loyalty,” off bloom said in a statement. “This group of songs represents the last 3-4 months of our lives — our ups and downs, our fuck-ups and successes, our loves and losses. We had an amazing time creating this EP and got to experience so much, and those experiences shaped the music. We just want to connect to the people listening to these tracks and hopefully some people will see themselves in the music and in us and want to join the bloominati.”
The Lover Like Me EP follows a previous single, “Falcon Eye,” itself the follow up off bloom’s breakthrough debut EP Love To Hate It. Their unique, boundary-pushing sound is the perfect melding of Scandinavian electro-pop and a new wave of UK and US beats with global influences.
The band is from the same forward-thinking young Danish scene as MØ, Liss, Vera, and Vasco, and have worked with the likes of Two Inch Punch, Kid Harpoon and AlunaGeorge, with upcoming collaborations lined up with the likes of Bauer and RL Grime.
