“It was an emotion that was very present for me.”
Sydney post hardcore outfit Bloom are blossoming at the moment, largely on the back of their awesome new single Sink Into The Soil.
Following the release of the EP In Passing in 2020, Bloom were forced into musical purgatory by the world’s events, but have emerged on the other side with a renewed zest and vigor.
Sink Into The Soil is a slightly new direction for Bloom, while still maintaining the band’s essence at its core.
After recently announcing a major city tour to accompany the single, vocalist Jono and guitarist Jarod joined HEAVY to discuss the future.
“Sink Into The Soil for us is the first step in the evolution of the Bloom sound,” Jono explained. “It’s obviously heavier than some of the previous stuff we’ve written and combines the stuff we love and how we shaped our sound over the few years we’ve been a band. It combines bigger choruses with bigger, heavier sections as well. Lyrically, it talks a little bit more about the struggle of getting older and realising that things haven’t gotten better. It’s falling back on that lie that you tell yourself as you’re growing up that one day all my problems will go away, and I’ll be mature and everything will be fine and as you get to a mature age realising that things haven’t changed. It speaks to feeling like you’re trapped and you’re sinking into this negative state.”
In the full interview the boys talk more about the single and its subject matter, writing about personal experiences and feelings, future music, surviving lockdown, playing at UNIFY, their upcoming tour and more.
