Algae Bloom

Algae Bloom are a two-piece screamo/emo band from Norwich, UK that have been around since 2014. You may recognize from the incredible split they put out with Foxtails last month, and since their back catalogue is just as good, I figured I'd feature it all here. They play a fantastic blend of math-y midwestern emo and screamo, with relatively clean and melodic guitar work, but absolutely throat-shredding vocals akin to the most violent of screamo bands. This combination makes them a must-listen for fans of Merchant Ships and other bands associated with that sound. Algae Bloom have such a captivating energy to them, paired with solid songs and musicianship. Highly recommended. Enjoy.
