amilost returning with blossoming new single ‘Bloom’

Norwegian/Scottish duo amilost releases their first single since signing with Stockholm-based tastemaker label Icons Creating Evil Art with ‘Bloom’.

New single ‘Bloom’ is another profoundly personal offering from the duo as they aim to capture something more universal in the human psyche. ‘Bloom’ details the ending of a toxic relationship and the new lease of life that brings – befriending time and not rushing into anything. The lyrics equate the endurance of a toxic relationship to a bud in the ground not blooming. Unlike amilost’s previous material, ‘Bloom’ experiments with unexplored electronic textures. The track starts in familiar territory, vocally driven and gloomy, before the sudden chorus kicks in with the quantised ring of bells and syncopated drum rhythm; deep subs and a plethora of percussion create a beautifully busy backdrop for vocalist Sigrid Zeiner’s dulcet tones to slice through like butter.

“‘Bloom’ is a bittersweet anthem about being single, the road that leads you to it, and the feeling of gratitude for the journey,” Sigrid added. “Coming out of that toxic relationship feels like thawing, but soon you’re ready to bloom and make life beautiful again on your own terms. Blooming after a bad situation is such a high that you don’t want to come down from, and it really motivates you to focus on yourself and be grateful for everything you have.”
