Blushing are a band formed of two husband and wife pairs, although it didn’t start out that way. Back in 2015, singer and guitarist Michelle Soto plucked up the courage to share some songs she had been working on with friend Christina Carmona. From that friendship, a creative partnership was born, Christina adding her classically trained vocals and bass-playing to the mix, shifting Michelle’s rough sketches into fully formed compositions. Recruiting their spouses, they set about recording the songs that would become their debut EP, Tether.

After the EP’s release, and with growing acclaim, the band went back into the studio as quickly as possible and recorded their latest offering, Weak. The record showcases a sound Blush are making entirely their own; shimmering guitars, rolling bass-lines, heavy drum hits and a vocal set to draw a raft of Cocteau Twins comparisons.  From the gloomy Hidden Places to the triumphantly loud Bound, Weak is a record that wears its melancholy with pride.
