A fresh take on pop music, Boston-based indie artist Hazel Bloom explores elements of electronica and R&B on his new single “I Loved You, Once,” our TODAY. Recorded by Chris Curran at Reclaim Studios, the track tackles multiple genres simultaneously, seamlessly weaving between the colorful sonic elements of each. Although an interesting combination of sounds, “I Loved You, Once” never sounds muddled; in fact, it upholds the exact opposite. The track is a clear exploration of electro pop, but the crisp production allows Hazel Bloom to turn his experimentation into a haunting, unforgettable blend of heartache, optimism, and bliss. About the single, Hazel Bloom states:“I Loved You, Once” is the first song I wrote while experimenting with new production methods and instruments. I had never experimented with elements of electro pop or R&B before so it was like a breath of fresh air to start producing music of this genre. I’m overly excited to share this song with everyone as I feel I have finally found a sound that defines me as an artist. I gain a lot of inspiration and write mostly from life experiences which is where “I Loved You, Once” stems from. I was going through a tough breakup at the time of writing this song and that was when I realized I wanted to try something different. I wanted to produce a song that’s upbeat and blissful sounding that I feel inspires hope in the listener. I also wanted to incorporate catchy melodies and lyrics anyone can relate to. Writing this song stretched my musical vision as a solo artist and I couldn’t be more excited with where my music will take me.
