Birmingham group Victories At Sea have spent the past 18 months steadily, patiently evolving into something quite entrancing.
Essentially a post-punk group but with synths push to the fore, there's a sense of Editors' early grandeur in their pleasantly epic songwriting.
New cut 'Bloom' is the lead single from the band's debut album 'Everything Forever', and it's as distinct an introduction as you'll get to the Birmingham three piece.
Soaring of vocal, crystalline of synth and driving of rhythm, 'Bloom' has an eloquent grandeur all of its own. Check it out now.
