The band's second studio album was released in April, and saw them put greater emphasis on the more synth-heavy aspects of their sound. No track being more indicative of this than the first single off of the record, 'I Can't Stand It', which was partly inspired by the 2004 science fiction film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Elaborating on its influence, Blossoms lead man Tom Ogden expounds:
"It's a song about desperately wanting to forget about someone, but you can't because they're a part of you - and how that can be unbearable. Spotless Mind is about wanting to erase someone from your thoughts - to forget they even existed - and that feeds into the lyrics. It's a very literal song in many ways."
Listen to 'I Can't Stand It' below.
