This may sound silly, but sometimes you just need to sit and listen. It’s the best way to describe Blossom Caldarone’s latest EP, ‘Maybe In Love (Maybe Not)’ – a rich and textured collection that showcases Blossom’s knack for making songs that play out more like chapters in a novel than a quick-fire sugar-rush of pop candy.
While that grin of comedy continues to beam from tracks like ‘Fridge Space’, the turn to songs focused on love and everything that surrounds its jumbled world of emotions finds Blossom thriving. Managing to effortlessly turn everyday conversation into song, the entire EP feels like a voice-note exchange with your best mate – transformed with lush instrumentation that calls to mind Lily Allen-honesty if backed by Father John Misty down a London boozer. ‘Blue’ is devastating in its ability to capture the joy and fears of falling in love with someone while ‘The Princess Song’ and ‘Young Love’ (with its early Matt Maltese journey) unravel into pure romantic bliss.
The result is Blossom Caldarone’s most perfectly formed collection to date, and a clear statement that in order to find your next favourite songwriter, all you have to do is listen.
