Blushing - alternative rock / dreampop / indie rock / shoegaze music project from Austin, United States.
Austin dream pop / shoegaze quartet Blushing will be releasing their self-titled debut LP September 6th 2019 on blue galaxy swirl vinyl via Wallflower Records and on CD via Hands and Moment. Recorded, mixed and produced by Elliott Frazier of Ringo Deathstarr the band’s first full length effort showcases a growth in the their expansive, cascading sound laden with ethereal vocals and fervent guitar, simultaneously capable of reining in with emotional and melodic space. 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 own sound as it is today.Their debut EP "Tether" was self- released in 2017, followed by their EP "Weak" on Austin Town Hall Records in January of 2018.
Channeling their high-energy performances and gaining infectious momentum, Blushing have since been asked to play official SXSW showcases in 2018 and 2019, and have shared stages with the likes of Snail Mail, Sunflower Bean, La Luz, BRONCHO, illuminati hotties, Yumi Zouma and many more.They were recently picked by SXSW to be one of the coveted featured artist in the Official 2019 SXSW Music Preview Guide and the KEXP Song of the Day.
