The Cactus Blossoms
Friday, October 20th, 2017
By infusing elements of early rock’n’roll and classic country, The Cactus Blossoms have created a sound that is both timeless and contemporary, accompanied by thoughtful lyrics and soaring harmonies. What immediately jumps out when listening to the ten originals on their new You’re Dreaming album are the The Cactus Blossoms’ incredible, seamless vocals. The duo shines a spotlight on the time-honored tradition of blood harmony, best illustrated by artists such as The Everly Brothers or The Carpenters. The Cactus Blossoms’ style has grabbed the attention of both press and radio. The BBC’s Bob Harris has described their work as “completely stunning” and the brothers have already appeared as guests on A Prairie Home Companion. Originals like the danceable “Stoplight Kisses” with its shuffle rhythm and “Clown Collector” deliver what The Cactus Blossoms have become known for: writing and performing songs with infectious melodies that are guaranteed to stick in your head. The duo has penchant for heartfelt ballads such as beautiful “Queen Of Them All” and the introspective “If I Can’t Win”. You’re Dreaming is the culmination of several years of songwriting and the kindness of thousands of miles and friends. With a cast of characters, experiences, and personal perspectives, set in simple rhymes and sung in harmony, the Cactus Blossoms try to paint a picture in your mind.
