Desert May Bloom delivers real rock music. Jazz harmonies or reggae rhythms regularly resonate and expand the versatile sound of the band, always focusing on the big picture. In the lyrics, travel experiences are linked with socially critical themes. Influences from Blur and Coldplay, but also The Clash and Radiohead cannot be denied.
The band came together in Vienna after a series of several serendipities. Moritz came to town after a lengthy trip to South America. Very soon he met Simon, who himself had just returned from Latin America. Together they founded the band. A little later they were followed by Solen, who moved from Morocco to the federal capital especially to join this project. He and Moritz have had a deep friendship since their trip to South America together. Pianist Florian and drummer Julian completed the band line-up.
Each member carries his own background. This really brings out the diversity of the band. Their internationality is reflected in their musical work. Their single "Girl" has had particularly good reception. International radio airplay and over 26,000 streams on Spotify, it brought Desert May Bloom the deserved media attention. Therefore, they soon put the focus on a joint album production. With great meticulousness and determination they realise with "Mother" a debut album that underlines the talent and musical understanding of each band member and thus shows that the musical journey has now really begun for Desert May Bloom.
