As Blossoms release their acclaimed second album 'Cool Like You', the band have shared the fantastic new video for their current single There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls). The clip was directed by Masashi Muto, who has worked with Tiesto and Faithless previously. Filmed on the streets of Tokyo, the video was inspired by The Beatles’ A Hard Days Night.
Speaking on the direction of the video, the band explain:
"Shooting a music video in Japan was something we’d wanted to do for a while. We took influence from The Beatles A Hard Days Night and tried to capture the camaraderie between us a band of friends.
"We’ve been to Japan a couple of times and we fell in love with it from the first time we went. When we wanted to make a video overseas somewhere, it was always going to be Tokyo. We loved being chased around the streets and It made five lads from Stockport feel like the Beatles for a day."
