In a short amount of time, this young artist’s music has gotten some impressive music fan attention.
The day “Elevator” was released it was immediately added to Spotify’s Chill Vibes Playlist (playlist has over 900K followers). His 2017 “One More Shot” song became a “quiet” YouTube hit with over 2 million cumulative streamsand his debut albumBlue Room already has over 450,000 plays on Spotify.
In the beginning of 2018, in the midst of working on his new material, Bloom’s song “Evanesce” was featured in the Netflix Original movie “The Open House.” An exciting moment for an indie artist who runs his own label…
Alex has received early critical praise for his songwriting and complex vocal arrangements.
“Elevator” is just a foreshadow of the rest of Bloom’s new material (sophomore album) set for release in 2019.
If you didn’t know better, you’d think “Elevator” was the product of an Elliott Smith/Tame Impala collaboration, with Brian Wilson as orchestrator.
“I wrote a song about the existential elevator ride of life. I think it’s something everyone thinks about all the time. My creative inspiration came from this little white Casio keyboard with preset beats that I set to ‘Rock’. Then I started with this guitar riff and immediately noticed the shape and movement of the chord I used, kind of looked like an elevator.” – Alex Bloom
