BLŪMĒ Unveils ‘Everything Is Going To Be O.K.’: A Fusion of Decades of Different Alt Rock Styles

8 mins read

In their latest offering set to debut in just three days, BLŪMĒ opens the door to their musical universe with the album “Everything Is Going To Be O.K.” This German-Mexican band merges a variety of influences, encapsulating the essences of bands like RADIOHEAD, THE STROKES, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, MUSE, and TAME IMPALA, to craft a sound that is quite uniquely their own.

BLŪMĒ’s style harks back to the late 1960s and early 1970s, yet they manage to bring this influence into the modern era with aplomb. Throughout the creation of “Everything Is Going To Be O.K.,” the band followed a dynamic and evolving process, shifting from gathering material to refining the essence of each track. This approach has resulted in an album where catchy melodies intertwine with a playful musicality, allowing each song to stand out as if it were a debut in itself.


“While crafting this album, we didn’t adhere to a specific thematic concept. Instead, we were driven by a singular goal: to compose music that resonates with the struggles of our generation.” – says the band.

“We hoped that listeners would find solace in these songs, realizing that we’re all navigating the same choppy waters, and that with mutual support, everything will eventually fall into place. It’s akin to offering a comforting “there, there, child” sentiment to those who need it most.”

“In terms of production and sound, our aim was to maintain authenticity and rawness, true to the essence of our instruments. We deliberately imposed limitations on ourselves, which in turn compelled us to explore more innovative ideas and unearth unique sounds without relying on post-production refinement. Opting to record everything live in the studio ensured that we captured a rougher, more unpolished sound that truly reflects the essence of ourmusic.”


As we await the full release, you can experience a glimpse into the eclectic and vibrant energy that BLŪMĒ promises to bring with their debut. Today, the band joins us for a special track by track commentary, offering you a bunch of details behind each song.

Everything Is Going To Be O.K.” emerges not just as a sonic landscape but as a psychological exploration, where BLŪMĒ entices listeners into a world draped in contradiction and introspection. This album crafts an audacious narrative around the mundane and the profound, questioning the essence of apathy and inertia through a blend of erratic rhythms and engaging melodies.

Each track serves as a paradox, beginning with the title song, which transforms a hymn to laziness into a catalyst for action and self-reflection. From the rebellious energy of “Lethargy” to the introspective melancholy of “I Miss The Ocean,” the album is a journey through the complex interplay of human emotions, crafted to both unsettle and inspire, leaving the audience pondering the irony of comfort and the challenge of change.


Lethargy – an ode to laziness, everyday apathy and procrastination – quickly became a fan-favorite. But not many know that when Noah first wrote the song, it had a soft bedroom surf-rock sound; only after we messed around with it in the rehearsal room, it turned out to be what you know now – an erratic, energetic version, which ironically contradicts the main topic of the song. In the chorus, a wall of fuzz and distorted guitars catches you off guard and makes you want to move, to run even. Seriously, many of our fans have reported to have this on their running playlists.

We love doing that: catching people’s attention, throwing somewhat of a curveball. We wrote a song about inertia, about not finding the time to make your dreams come true, when really, our goal was to motivate the listener to get up and follow through with their commitments, get shit done!

That’s the most appropriate way to start the album that is deceptive in its own nature. Just while listening to the first track of “Everything Is Going To Be O.K.”, we want to make the audience stop and think – will everything really be okay? Maybe that’s courageous, even ambitious of us, but there’s no better way to introduce the public to BLŪMĒ.

The Sun

This song has been described to us as a perfect one to drive down the highway, embracing the shadow, dancing through a fire, a shot of post-punk-indie-dance-rock. Simply put, The Sun is a fever dream. But, of course, there’s more to that.

Noah came up with the idea of writing a song from a perspective of a drug, an addiction, as if it was talking to a soul lost in a maze of craving. It lurks and provokes, gives the feeling of euphoria and then takes it back before you realize you’re hooked. This dark atmosphere is fueled by the haunting, wailing guitars full of reverb: it makes you feel uneasy and transmits the sickening, sweat-filled feeling like a drug would.

With our music, we want to evoke emotion, we want to make people jump and scream, but also take an uncomfortable journey of self-exploration. It’s not simple nor effortless, but just like any kind of art – it shouldn’t be. It should be truthful and sometimes hard to look at. I am the sun until I stop shining for you; all I care about is building you up just to break you down. That’s The Sun – the drug, the ecstatic dream combined with rough reality.


Two Of A Kind

Sonically, this track is definitely one of the odd ones. Adrian initially got inspired after attending the concert of “The Smile”; what drove him to experiment with heavy delay effects on guitars in an attempt of chasing that characteristic Jonny Greenwood attitude. By testing the waters and exploring around, Two Of A Kind has been born.

It begins with a rather atmospheric ambience and takes the listener by the hand, seamlessly leading into a hypnotic trip. First, through the drum groove and then, the swirling guitars. Shortly after, the unexpected explosion at the chorus lands you on shoegaze territory just before taking back into the bed of guitar layers and driving rhythm.

Thematically, the song carefully guides us through the relationship between a parental figure and a child. We wanted to talk about the differences the two may have, despite their shared DNAs, how very distant one can feel while simultaneously being so close.

For us it was definitely a step out of the comfort zone, but with no fear that usually comes along. Just excitement, intrigue, wonder. We joked about scaring the audience off with such a weirdo of a song, but, believe it or not, it’s another fan-favorite. With Two Of A Kind, we received a lot of feedback. It was when we first discovered that the thrill we had while recording has transmitted to the listeners. It’s the best feeling.

Thin Ice

Thin Ice isn’t an easy song to perform on a personal level, it speaks from the perspective of a dedicated friend who has been a “lifeboat” for a loved one caught in the grips of addiction. With lyrics like “The ice is melting” and “Have you learned to swim alone” the songwriting encapsulates the breaking point of once-inseparable friendship and growing frustration.

It is not just another track on the list; it’s a real human experience reflected in a vivid storytelling. The powerful instrumentation perfectly complements the emotional depth of the lyrics: the dynamic upbeat energy draws the listeners in, while the dark and intense narrative connects the raw essence of a friendship being pushed to its limits.

The fourth track on the album is a personal testament to the complexities of friendship, drug addiction, and boundaries. It includes both evocative lyrics and electrifying rock sound and takes the listener on an emotional rollercoaster between high-energy rhythms and thought-provoking lyrics.

Again: the exploration of human emotion has become a huge topic of the album. We strongly believe in delivering a message, both raw and relatable.

I Will Be Better The Next Time I See You

The story of I Will Be Better The Next Time I See You is probably the most touching and sentimental out of all. Noah and Rowen, who we collaborated with on this track off the album, have actually known each other since day one; literally. They were born on the same night in the same hospital, only to cross paths again after 23 years to write music. Call it destiny or fate, but this reunion brought this baby to life.

And while the song itself is about an unhealthy, codependent relationship, composing it together made perfect sense for the guys. Later, when the rest of the band contributed their parts, it grew and evolved just like the story within.

The backing vocals, synthesizers, cello even – the crescendo of sound reflects the journey from dependency to self-sufficiency, becomes a declaration of personal strength. It is not just a pretty sound, it’s another story about human connection, about falling down and getting up, about the constant rollercoaster that is life.

Bigger Than Myself

In this tune, we’re taking you on a wild roller coaster ride through our own emotions. Noah embraces themes of inner conflict, acceptance, and resilience, all packed into this 5-minute journey. He truly captures the struggle with inner demons, using a shadow as a metaphor. This song came to life right in our living room, starting with just a nylon string guitar. We whipped up the chords and lyrics in about an hour. It was one of those moments where the music seemed to flow effortlessly, and we were just vessels for its creation.

The bridge section of this song stands out as one of the peaks of the whole album. After a dramatic display of tense and slow guitar arpeggios, we shift into double time, creating a “buckle up and hold on tight” moment before launching into the crescendo that leaves nothing behind, taking your ship straight into the thunderstorm.


Here we take you through an exploration of the many shadows lurking within our own minds. In the process of songwriting, we couldn’t help but notice the fusion of many of our inspirations from the art- and progressive rock world, which lead to this powerful sonic experience.

This one is without a doubt the heaviest and darkest song of the whole record. Strangers delves into the depth of the human psyche, bringing to attention themes like self-discovery and inner conflict.

“Lost in a daydream, eyes staring at me, they don’t belong here” are the opening lines that give listeners a sense of intrigue and ambiguity, blurring the boundaries between reality and imagination. “But they keep staring at me, strangers in the backseat” is somewhat a yearning for help and understanding from someone who’s struggling in a battle against their own demons.

The song’s intensity builds with each verse, echoing the growth of the protagonist’s internal fear. It is a plea for connection, a desire to confront the unseen companion, the mix of raw emotions and lost hope. Strangers is here to invite the listeners to close their eyes and embrace the unknown.

Dream Of You

Dream of You is intricate in many ways: on the surface, it’s a pop-smash rocker that makes the listener dance, keeps them in an adrenaline-fueled grip; but with a closer, more intimate look, it showcases the conceptual depth through constantly changing variations of fills, riffs and expressions building upon each other. With this song, we wanted to stimulate one’s senses, build up the excitement while also capturing the existential melancholy.

Imagine being stuck in the same dream (or a nightmare) over and over again, hopeless and full of despair, and then wake up. Is it a blessing or a curse? Can you really move on from something that is so deeply unconscious, something you have no control over? With the combination of dynamic rhythms, explosive drums, distorted guitar and Noah’s energetic voice, Dream of You has become a juxtaposed part of the album.

Is it a danceable joyride of a track to play at the party? Yes. Can you find yourself reflecting over lyrics and feeling vulnerable? Also yes. As long as you’re letting go and allowing yourself to feel, we’re doing it right.

I Miss The Ocean

Last but not least, I Miss The Ocean. Adrian and Noah had this older track lying around that never really got to see the light of day. We’re not big on just putting stuff out there for the sake of it. When we write a song, we gotta feel like it’s got a purpose, like it really deserves to be recorded.

So, this one was just sitting there, kinda forgotten. It wasn’t until we wrapped up the rest of the album that we revisited it. After 30 minutes of intense music, this tender ballad arrives and starts playing, gently embracing your ears and taking you back to those little moments in life that bring a smile to your face.

It is a farewell to those who stuck with us through the whole album; it leaves you feeling warm, a bit melancholic, but also reassures you, saying, “It’s not goodbye, just a ‘see you soon,'” while reminding you once more that everything’s gonna be ok.
