Album: Cool Like You (2018)

  • Lyrics
  • This track, written in January 2016, is a "follow on" from the last album's breakup song "Getaway," which was penned in November 2015. "There's a Reason" finds Tom Ogden explaining to his ex that he doesn't return her calls for fear of falling for her again.
  • The song's music video finds Blossoms on the streets of Tokyo. "Shooting a music video in Japan was something we'd wanted to do for a while", the band said of the visual. "We took influence from The Beatles' A Hard Days Night and tried to capture the camaraderie between us a band of friends."

    "We've been to Japan a couple of times and we fell in love with it from the first time we went," they added. "When we wanted to make a video overseas somewhere, it was always going to be Tokyo. We loved being chased around the streets and it made five lads from Stockport feel like the Beatles for a day."
