Bloomr are an American alt-rock band based in Baltimore who channel noisy punk energy and flirt with earworm power-pop tendencies while creating their plaintive melodies.
Bloomr share the performance video for “TalkTalkTalk,” which hits streaming platforms Friday via The Animal Farm UK. The track was produced by J. Robbins and mixed by The Animal Farm UK. Fans of everyone from Weezer and Pavement, to REM, Superdrag, and The Lemonheads are sure to keep “TalkTalkTalk” in heavy rotation.
Of the song, vocalist and guitarist Brian Scott says, ”We’re living on our phones in a digital world that’s disconnecting us. There’s a lot more talking, but people are saying a lot less.”
Scott grew up in a house where Motown, The Beatles, and The Beach Boys played on the magnavox console all the time. His older sister introduced him to INXS, U2, The Police, Midnight Oil, and The Violent Femmes and took him to see The Cure as his first-ever concert. Public Enemy, The Beastie Boys, Run DMC, and then the grunge movement hit him later like a pedestrian getting run over in a crosswalk.
Siamese Dream by the Smashing Pumpkins entered Scott’s orbit, encouraging him to pick up guitar and begin looking for a band as soon as he knew two chords.
Tons of songs, rehearsals, and wayward bands eventually turned into Fall Back Plan, a band that toured nationally and appeared on MTV, propelling him to Nashville to explore the industry. That’s were his songwriting became Bloomr.
Scott is joined by Kamari (bass), Steve Webb (guitar), and John Dahlgren (drums).
