Blossoms' Ultimate Playlist

After recent tough times for British guitar bands, Stockport five-piece Blossoms are here to fly the flag for the new generation.

Unafraid to wear their Britpop influences on their sleeve, the band have a glorious way with a melody and a groove, which is always - always - a good thing.

Fresh from being a BBC Sound of 2016 pick at the start of the year, we caught up with them to discover their Ultimate Playlist - their favourite songs and the stories behind their selections: and there's some absolute beauties in there.

You can see Blossoms live on 30th April at the Live At Leeds festival (tickets at liveatleeds.com/tickets) and at this year's Reading and Leeds Festival, which takes place 26-28 August. For more info visit blossomsband.co.uk. Watch their latest single Getaway here
