Unbloomed

Unbloomed
is the debut solo album from English musician Johnny Aries. As the latest addition to Brooklyn based indie pop outfit The Drums, Aries––who was recruited when his previous band, Two Wounded Birds, played alongside The Drums during a recent UK tour––has crafted a record that is as romantic as it is unhinged.

Ahead of the release of their new album Individ, on January 27th, 2015 via Dine Alone Records, San Francisco duo The Dodos have just shared their latest track, “Goodbyes and Endings.” Though the song features moody crooning from Meric Long, it instantly comes to life amidst choppy strumming and brightly coloured instrumentation.
