Brace For The Bloom is the new album from the St. Paul band Dragons Power Up! The recording is a dense, hook-heavy guitar rock album with a strong focus on arrangement and lyrical narrative. Lyrically and sonically, the common thread is transition possibly transition still in process. Nearly every song deals with making sense of change relationships, nature, perspective and aging. The lyrics also shift in narrator and tone, and range from linear narrative to obscure. During the recording of the album the band found themselves building beyond the basic lineup of the four members with the additional instrumentation provided by friends.
