2019 is shaping up to be quite the year for Shab Ferdowsi, who is the singer/songwriter behind the “fuzzy guitar pop” act Blushh. With a headlining/festival run coming up in a few days in Los Angeles, Blushh has decided to grace us with a brand new single ahead of their upcoming tour dates.  Blushh gave listeners an inkling of what to expect from future releases with their one-off single, “All My Friends.”

The poignant, yet melodic, new single follows the release of the band’s latest EPs, 2017’s It’s Fine and 2018’s Thx 4 Asking. Of the new song, Shab Ferdowsi shared in a press release:

“Last year I moved back into my parent’s house for about 10 months. I was 20 miles away from all my friends, and I slowly but surely started spending more nights at home than I did hanging out. I was caught between not wanting to go out to begin with and starting to feel detached, both physically and emotionally, from my social life. Safe to say that’s probably where this song stemmed from, lyrically.

Sonically, this is the beginning of the most collaborative work Blushh has seen to date. I spent months with my band working on a batch of new songs, which is something I’ve never done before. The gang vocals kill me every time and I hope they rip your hearts out too.”


“All My Friends” marks our first taste of new music since 2018, and it looks as though we won’t have to wait much longer for new releases from the group. Per the press release, the band recently completed recording on their first full-length album

To hear Blushh’s “I’m Over It” is to be transported directly to the ’90s in the span of less than 20 seconds. Shab Ferdowsi knows just how to rip into a fuzzy, rousing chorus with maximum efficiency and force — you can just imagine a stadium full of people rising up in unison to shout along while still conveying universal truths about emotional labor and frustration. “I’m Over It” is there to perfectly sum up your lousy day, while invariably improving it. Sometimes it doesn’t take 3:30. No chaff or endless repetition here. These songs are the perfect length and I wish all 2-minute tracks sounded like this.
