The new Neck Deep single has just been released in to the world, and if you think it’s a different sound for the band, you’re not the only one. We had the opportunity to chat with Fil Thorpe-Evans from Neck Deep about it, and he is the first to admit that In Bloom is very left-field.

“[This one] is showing the diversity now. This is where we’re dropping the songs that show our development… I feel like all the songs that are out already are the ones you’d expect to hear from us, and this is going more left field now and it’s kind of a slower, vibier track but with a big chorus. I don’t know- to me I’ve always said about this song that it reminds me of The Fray. And I don’t know why. It doesn’t necessarily sound anything like The Fray, there’s just something about it. I don’t know whether it’s the chord progression, or just like, what it is. But when I listen to it makes me think of that.”

Despite how different In Bloom is to the Neck Deep most people expect, Fil told us that it’s his favourite song on their upcoming album The Peace And The Panic. And his love for the song also extends to the video that accompanies it, telling us “I love it, and it’s honestly one of my favourite songs on the record. We just did a video for it not too long ago which is like, super sick and probably my favourite video we’ve ever done. And it’s a super pop-y influenced video. So it’s definitely a… it’s definitely going to be a bit of a shocker to some people.”
