Blossoms discuss Ribbon Around The Bomb becoming their third UK Number 1 album on The Record Club: "We could have dwindled into obscurity!"

The Stockport indie outfit gave an exclusive interview talking about reaching Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart for the third time with their fourth record.

Blossoms were this week's guests on The Record Club with Bowers & Wilkins, where they celebrated netting their third UK Number 1 album with Ribbon Around The Bomb.

Talking to Jess Iszatt, the band said that their fourth LP entering at the top of the Official Albums Chart still felt "surreal."

"It's nice it's still happening on the fourth record," they said, "because we could have dwindled off into obscurity and just been known for one album.

"We always said we wanted longevity, so the fact that last two records got to Number 1's not the be-all and end-all, but it is is validating. It's nice!"
