Sometimes you just need these hymns which are about (broken) love and feels like sweet an heavy honey. The debut release “Bloom” by indie pop duo STAY GLDN has everything that makes a perfect love song, up to a voluminous and warm refrain that gets under your skin and makes you melt. Both artists, Anders and Thom, work together perfectly to create a lush, hauntingly piece that lands on the pop landscape.
After spending their formative years perfecting their craft as musicians, a chance meeting brought the pair together for a writing session under less than ideal conditions. The young duo quickly discovered that their talents could seamlessly collide to create something special and decided to make a conscious choice to permanently outgrow the toxic people and environments that sought to withhold their potential.
They say: “‘Bloom’ is about the premature ending of a relationship and the intrusive thoughts and doubts that come as a result. Relationships rely on the promise of a future and when things fall apart that future becomes uncertain. This is written about the future of a relationship that never came to be.”
