about

The debut album 'Flower Violence' is a succinct introduction to Blóm. It was recorded, mixed and mastered by Sam Grant at Blank Studios - Summer 2019.

Lyrically the album explores themes of queerness, feminism, gender identity, mental health, socio economic challenges, christianity, Twin Peaks and the Fyodor Dostoyevsky novel 'Crime and Punishment'. The latter theme is covered in - Übermensch, listed as two tracks on the album, which for the most part, was structured in the studio.

Open to improvisation, with fluidity, is how live performances are approached, often playing a continuous set with pieces merging into each other without any interruption. 'Songs' will develop once they have been played live to an audience, and are always open to change. This is how Übermensch in particular was approached during the recording. The improvised nature of the track adds to the feeling of unrest and uncertainty.
