Track Of The Day: BAXTR – ‘Bloom’

With an explosively fresh energy and tight, popping instrumentals, London trio BAXTR unveil indie greatness in their debut single ‘Bloom’.

Inspired by ’80s retro-pop, BAXTR bring a fiery energy to the modern dance canvas and paint it with a melody that will immediately leave you reaching for repeat. The rich history of the trio’s closeness is evident throughout ‘Bloom’ –  a natural chemistry spins in circles and forms its own unique sonic charisma. This joyful tone is the glue of BAXTR’s witty sound and supports the band’s feel-good drums, sunny guitar riffs and sing-along vocals.

The bounce of ‘Bloom’ is undeniable, and embodies the spirit of a best friend pulling you into the sun “in the middle of June.” It is both the pick-me-up easy car ride and the quiet summer night in a backyard with your favourite people. BAXTR have removed anything melancholy about nostalgia in ‘Bloom’ and delivered us nothing but the good memories and the lightness of noughties pop music. It’s a reassuring boost in the form of a song – reminiscent, hopeful and contagious. 

 

‘Bloom’ is out now. Listen on Spotify.

#ThrowbackThursday: GIHE w/ Girls Rock London 28.11.19

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, we’re unable to make it in to the Hoxton Radio studio to broadcast our weekly live new music show from 7-9pm. Instead, we’re sharing previous show recordings as #ThrowbackThursday sessions, so you can still enjoy 2 hours of new music & chats with some of our favourite artists & allies each week.

Today, we’ve picked our November 2019 show with the wonderful Alex & Jodi from Girls Rock London. They joined Kate and guest-host Beth White live in the studio to chat about the amazing work they do with the global organisation, which encourages girls and young women to create the music they want to hear.

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, we’re unable to make it in to the Hoxton Radio studio to broadcast our weekly live new music show from 7-9pm.

Tash also played her phone interview with Chrisy Hurn from Canada’s Basement Revolver.
