Paolo Sandejas’ long-awaited Bloom EP captivates listeners with its heartfelt and introspective tracks. Alongside previously released singles, this six-track EP features the title track “Bloom,” a poignant portrayal of the transformative moment following a breakup when one gathers the strength to move forward.
The song paints a vivid picture of a harsh and wintry landscape, symbolizing the pain and sorrow that accompanies heartbreak.
However, just as winter gives way to the vibrant arrival of spring, the artist finds solace and begins to radiate with newfound hope. Paolo reveals that he initially crafted the song around the bright and hopeful instrumental, aiming to match its uplifting tone with lyrics centered on the same theme. His intention is to console those who may be dwelling on the past, urging them to shift their focus forward and embrace their own personal growth.
“Bloom” stands as a powerful indie pop anthem, capturing the intricate emotions that arise from heartache and the transformative journey towards healing. This track, along with the EP’s other offerings, such as “Different Shade Of Blue,” “Hide & Seek,” “Liquid Courage,” “BORED? (hope you’re happy),” and “Aftertaste” featuring Tala, showcases Paolo’s ability to encapsulate the essence of human experiences and emotions.
Sandejas’ ‘Bloom EP’ is a testament to his artistry and a must-listen for anyone seeking authentic and relatable music that resonates deeply within.
“Bloom” easily became part of numerous Spotify Playlists such as “Tatak Pinoy”, “RADAR Philippines”, “Situationship”, “Happy Stroll”, “.ORG”, and “OPM Rising”. Likewise, the song is included in the New Music Friday Playlist in the Philippines, Japan, Malaysia, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Indonesia.
Along with this grand release, Paolo Sandejas is also one of the chosen OPM acts for Spotify PH’s RADAR Artists of 2023. He’s also doing a busking tour with fellow artists to promote the Bloom EP.
