If you've been listening to Radio X the past few weeks then you're probably rather familiar with "Charlemagne", the new single from Stockport 5-piece Blossoms, given that it's been their 9th most played song in the past month. But for the benefit of anyone who hasn't heard it on account of not knowing what the heck Radio X is, then we've got it here for your aural pleasure, and what a delightful song it is.
Taking its name from the first Holy Roman Emperor, "Charlemagne" sound like a cross between James and all that 80s pop you pretend you only listen to ironically, when deep down you genuinely, positively love it. It's got one of the catchiest choruses that we've heard all year, and given the love the band have been receiving recently, a rather rosy 2016 is within their grasp.
"Charlemagne" is the title track from the band's upcoming E.P, which is out on October 30th.
