Doom Bloom is John Cooper and Chris Garcia.
‘E.L.K.‘ is a track taken from Californian duo Doom Bloom‘s latest retrospective EP ‘A Spiritual Epiphany?’. Initially, ‘E.L.K’ (which stands for “Every Lucky Kiss”) is slow going but its intensity is infectious. Its heavily reverb-laden, soaring guitars drive the track while the monotonous vocal delivery throughout grounds the track. ‘E.L.K.’ is a track that needs to be listened to loud to be truly appreciated, especially in its more epic parts as the track goes on. ––mixitallup
"Singer-songwriter Francis Blume sees the beauty and intricacies in the clean and clear approach. There is boldness in being raw and transparent in lyricism and production because it doesn’t leave much for the artist to hide or blend into; it allows for the emotional intent to come through clearly and dynamically. Blume’s rich vocals and bluesy, rock and roll approach harken back to the sound styles from the late 50s to the late 60s, where an emphasis on unclouded storylines allow for open interpretation and emotional messages to be applicable. Though the San Diegan vocalist only has a handful of songs available to stream currently, Francis Blume is carving his own path, spotlighting the power and captivating quality of clear soulful lyricism within his rock and roll groove. Each track transports listeners into a romanticized zone of raw love loss as spouts his potent narrative and heart-tugging vocals." ––Justine Fang, Amadeus Magazine
