The Playlist: Charlie Salt of Blossoms
In our second Playlist, Charlie Salt, the bassist of acclaimed English band Blossoms, shares a selection of his favourite tracks. Turn up the speakers and enjoy...
Despite its many tribulations, 2016 was a breakthrough year for Blossoms, one of the hardest-working young bands in the industry. They were named fourth in the BBC's Sound Of... list, one of only two guitar bands to feature, and then scored their first Number One with their eponymous debut album released in August. As well as making great music, the boys also have great taste in music – as bassist Charlie Salt proves with this brilliantly eclectic Playlist.
