Stockport indie pop band Blossoms have entered the number 1 position in the UK charts with their self titled debut album. The band has sold 10,000 copies in the last week with the help of radio stations including BBC 1, 2 and 6 music which aired the band’s material and helped them reach the top of the UK charts.
The band met when they were only children and shared the same music interest listening to local Manchester bands with the likes of Oasis or The Stone Roses.
After gaining recognition a couple of years ago and now being at the top the boys said: ‘We are absolutely made up that the album has gone to number one, from the scaffolding yards to the top of the charts, who’d have thought it? Viva Stockport!’.
To celebrate this achievement the band met no other than Stockport council leader Alex Ganotis who also met them when they released their debut album last week.
The band is embarking on a world tour and there is no better way than doing so when your album has reached number 1.
