Toronto country troupe Great Bloomers’ debut, Speak of Trouble, earned the group accolades for their balance of influences, which range from honky-tonk rock’n’roll to ‘60s psychedelia. Their second album, Distant Fires, finds the band channeling the same influences, but with added muscle: bigger, anthemic choruses, more grit and more energy.
Distant Fires is closer than you think — the whole album’s on Rdio starting today, a week before its official release date next week. Turn it up below:
