Hard hitting from start to finish, Bloom, the latest single from South-Wales alt-rock band WYNT, is nothing short of a rock and roll battle cry. Bloom is bursting with thick layers of guitar and powerful drums, the kind of song that would be right at home on a party playlist.
As a band, WYNT draws inspiration from indie rock artists like The Amazons and Nothing But Thieves, but their own songs have a little more bite. Grammy-nominated producer Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon, Kids In Glass Houses) may be partially to thank for the edge in WNYT’s Bloom, having worked closely with the band in 2020. Bloom is far from a one-trick pony when it comes to genre, blurring the lines between indie rock and metal; even a hint of country shines through in the vocal performance.
“We just don’t know better,” WYNT sings at the pinnacle of Bloom’s chorus. The song’s mentality flawlessly fits the attitude of today’s indie rock scene. Full of temptation and struggle, streaming this song is like taking a walk down a busy street on a Saturday night (in the days when that was still possible). Lines like, “I hide behind a cigarette” and, “effortless, better-dressed,” paint a vivid picture of the kind of thoughts that run through your mind on nights when anything is possible. Bloom is a treat, an escape, for a dismal year.
The five-piece WYNT have described their typical live show as, “a heart-wrenching, ear-shattering, sweat-filled euphoria,” which (lets hope) will be returning to South Wales stages next year as one of This Feeling’s “Big In 2020” acts. Having already gained recognition from BBC radio in 2019 with their debut single, Bad Vibes, WYNT has a lot to celebrate: Bad Vibes recently passed 36,000 streams on Spotify!
If you have not yet added WYNT to your quarantine playlist, now is the time. Holding the South Wales rock scene in high esteem with a bright past and an even brighter future, this is a band you won’t want to sleep on.
