about

Blossom gained rave reviews and National Radio airplay on BBC 6Music's Tom Robinson and BBC Introducing Mixtape shows during March 2020.

"it's a lovely concise, meditative track, great spoken word vocal too". Tom Robinson BBC 6Music/Introducing

"a beautifully spoken poem overlaying a gentle piano and cello melody" Rob Ball, FreshOnTheNet

lyrics

He chuckles into space
At her disapproving face
As he takes the crystal glassware from its ornamental case

Along the window sills
Beside dispenser packs of pills
Are the fragrance bottles salvaged from the sale

She would joke his perfume was brown ale

He reads the labels over
And wades through grass and clover
The book of British trees clasped in his hand

And he gathers fallen blossom from the land

Bending takes a while
But its better with a smile
It’s good to work his muscles in the sun
The joy is in the doing not the done

The scent is fairly strong
But it really won’t last long
So precious quick the petals start to brown
Once more into the fields in dressing gown

He ties each sandwich bag with a disused Christmas tag
And documents the scent with studious care
Then he shuffles round the house that he once shared with his spouse
And he fills up every piece of crystalware
