Hotly-tipped Greater Manchester band Blossoms put on an impressive show for a few hundred eager fans in the small back room of Sheffield’s prestigious The Leadmill venue.

Blossom’s gig saw two bands take to stage in support of the Stockport group.

First up were Fronteers. The Hull-based band crashed onto the stage and played a lengthy set, including their new single Youth.

Following that was new band, Cupids, who entertained the crowd with singles such as Money and No one talks.

After some serious warming up, the tightly packed crowd were ready for the band themselves to take to stage when 10pm came around.

Delivering a tight-knit set of both old and new releases, including Blow, Cut me and I’ll bleed and new single Charlemagne, which is released at the end of this month.

Halfway through the set, the band mix things up a bit, after singer Tom shouts: “Anyone wanna hear a song off the album?”

A cheer from the crowd sees the band crash into At Most A Kiss, similar to Charlemagne.

It is clear to see Blossoms have found a sound they are happy with.

The band then slow things down and play old acoustic track My Favourite Room.

After catching the band within the cosy four walls of The Leadmill’s back room, it’s clear to see this band are heading for something bigger.

After flying through a lengthy set and packing out this sweaty venue without even a release of a debut album, Blossoms are already proving themselves to be one to watch.
