★••→   Comprised of two husband and wife teams, Blushing is an Austin, TX based dream pop / shoegaze quartet that originated in the summer of 2015 after Michelle Soto (guitar, vocals) shared her songs with long~time friend and classically trained vocalist Christina Carmona (vocals, bass). Picking up the bass, Carmona helped to fully flesh out tracks and the two incorporated their spouses Jacob Soto (drums) and Noe Carmona (guitar). Bringing together their combined classic influences from bands like Lush, The Sundays, Cocteau Twins and My Bloody Valentine, they developed their unique sound as it is today.
★••→   Combining their high~energy live performances and gaining infectious momentum, Blushing took their experiences to explore more sound and texture to incorporate into their music, before going into the studio. After recruiting friend and producer Elliott Frazier (Ringo Deathstarr), the band spent time experimenting with new techniques and sounds to get the most out of each instrument. Fine tuning each individual song, along the drive to push further, results in an explosive culmination of music that envelopes brooding and wistful tones at that erupt into a highly satisfying sonic experience.
★••→   Blushing’s self~titled LP is a collection of tracks about life, love and death that demonstrates the band’s range and ability to expertly command both pure melody and noise.
