If anyone has ever felt a crush on someone that is deemed completely off limits due to whatever social construct, you’ll find yourself relating immensely to this new tune by Aaron Taos. “Bloom” manages to make the awkward and sometimes desperate feelings of being denied by someone you’re enamored with (in this case, his best friend’s sister!) feel romantic and electrifying. The beat is soothing to start, but quickly picks up with a passionate groove that will have anyone finding themselves nodding along. If windows-down-driving music was a genre, this song would be at the top of the list. The vocals are laid back, but full of the seductive feelings that come with the package of forbidden love. When added with a music video full of beautiful flower fields in full bloom and two people that just can’t seem to get the moment right, it’s easy to see how many audience members will find this song completely relatable.
MORE FROM THE ARTIST:
“Bloom” is a track about me having a crush on my friend’s sister. It’s got the whole forbidden fruit vibe where we both have feelings for each other but are unable to act on them given the context. The song is my confession about this underlying tension and making the case to this person that we should give in to our feelings. It’s the fantasy of letting our love blossom – a natural progression like the spring flowers in bloom.
