PRESENTED BY MATT CALDER
MICROPHONES BY RODE
Bloom formed at the University of Exeter at the end of 2013 with Jersey-born childhood friends Rory Mitchell and Sam Bowen (both vocals and guitar).
Initially starting as a dual-vocal acoustic act, the beginning of 2014 saw the addition of Ben Leftley (drums) and Luke Colwell (bass) and the bigger, psychedelic sound of the band emerged, inspired by Tame Impala, Radiohead and Foals. Since forming, the band have supported up-and-coming acts such as Youth Club, The Carnabys and Overcoats as well as winning University of Exeter’s Battle of the Bands, whilst maintaining a loyal fanbase locally.
The band have released two singles so far entitled “Oceans” and “Voices”, both met with positive response on Soundcloud, BBC Introducing in Devon and Fresh on the Net. Activity has been low for the band during 2016 due to university commitments. However, with its members having recently graduated, Bloom are now set to take things to the next level in Brighton later this year with new recordings and an updated live set.
