Label: The Label Recordings

Following on from ‘Days Like Today’, which was released earlier this year, ‘Bloom’ sees Ali Horn scale new psychedelic heights. The traces of the likes of The Las remain in the indie rock lyricism, but the swirling symphonic synths have more in line with The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s ‘Third World Pyramid’ release. Ali Horn began as a solo project but has now amassed five members; gaining both numbers and reputation; after playing a series of live shows over the summer, and garnering airplay on BBC Radio 6.

On the track Ali Horn says:

“It was the first track that I wrote away from Strange Collective in recent years that I actually thought was any good, first taking form in my basement bedroom come studio the original demo was 9 minutes long. This was then shortened for our live shows and then even more for this single version that we did last month in Parr Street Studios.”

“I guess in essence it’s about loneliness, sitting around out of my head thinking about where all my friends and loved ones were, sending them love and good vibes and hoping they were doing the same”
