Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.


It’s been several months now, and we’ve still not gotten over the breakup of Boston garage rock misfits The Barbazons. But you just can’t keep a good creative force dormant for long, and sometime over the haze of the holidays a few of the ‘Zons re-emerged with a new band called Boston Cream, rounded out by some faces familiarly seen playing around town with Hallelujah The Hills, The Furniture, and Creaturos.

Boston Cream’s latest single, “Bloom”, is out this week, just in time for their gig Friday (May 12) at Great Scott in Allston with Savoy Motel, and it’s a tumbling guitar-rock rumbler inspired by taking action in today’s frantic political and social climate.

Vocalist and ringleader Melanie Bernier says the track “is a rallying cry and a threat (and maybe a punishment, depending on your taste in music). The song is inspired by a life of feminist activism and, more recently, my experience at the D.C. Women’s March. It’s inspired by resilience and a gnawing gut and a refusal to slump shoulders.”

“Bloom” features guest vocals by Ana Carina DaCosta of 28 Degrees Taurus, Zoë Sundra, and American Echoes’ Nina Alyssa Ganci and Laura Ganci. Listen to it below.
