CANADIAN musical powerhouse duo Ash and Bloom (Matt McKenna and James Bloemendal) have launched their debut album “Let the Storm Come” and will be performing and promoting tracks from the album during their Australian tour in March.
They will put on a special afternoon show on Sunday, March 1 at the Quarterdeck Narooma before heading to Port Fairy Folk Festival.
They have crafted a sound reminiscent of Simon and Garfunkel and Iron and Wine. Their show also leans into synergy as their songs turn audiences into unsuspecting choirs.
Ash and Bloom’s features the heavy-hitting ballad "Let The Storm Come," a fan favourite, which boasts incredible song writing and vocal aptitude.
Another track, “Heaven Is A Ghost Town", is the duo's comedic gem, pointing listeners to what they believe Heaven is not.
The video for “Heaven Is A Ghost Town,” is an animated, controversial video depicting everyone from Ghandi to Oprah being turned away at the pearly gates.
The album also features an amazing version of “Tainted Love”, a worldwide hit for Soft Cell in the early 80s.
The two tracks "If You Stay" and "You Need More Than Love", live on opposite ends of the love spectrum yet both deliver a large dose of ear candy to listeners – and then, of course, there is the super-hip “Endless Pursuit of Cool”.
“Let the Storm Come” was released through MGM on February 6.
