Thomas Cohen was previously frontman of the band S.C.U.M. who released one exquisite album Again Into Eyes in 2011. Just 21-years-old when they split, Cohen’s life soon presented him with a different set of subjects to draw from. While his band may have broken up, his marriage and the birth of his two sons gave his subsequent songwriting a newfound focus and clarity.
Unfortunately, tragedy struck during the process of writing this record. In April 2014, Cohen’s wife, Peaches died at their Surrey home aged 25, leaving him to raise their two small boys. Rather than turn his back on the record in grief, Cohen eventually decided to continue work on the album. Relocating to Iceland to write and record the rest of Bloom Forever and finding some kind of peace through the process.
