Blushing

Blushing 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.

Their self-titled debut LP was released in September 2019 on Wallflower Records and Japanese label Hands and Moment to critical acclaim, selling out two vinyl pressings within 8 months. The release was widely praised and garnered the group a host of new fans.

Channeling their high-energy performances and gaining infectious momentum,
Blushing have toured the U.S. East and West coast and have since been asked to play official SXSW showcases in 2018 – 2021, Levitation, Audiotree, Part Time Punks and have shared stages with the likes of Snail Mail, Sunflower Bean, La Luz, BRONCHO, illuminati hotties, Yumi Zouma and many more.

Their highly anticipated second LP “Possessions” is scheduled for release February 18, 2022 on Kanine Records and was produced and engineered by Elliott Frazier of Ringo Deathstarr. The band collaborated with Miki Berenyi of Lush on the lead single “Blame” and the album was mastered by Mark Gardener of Ride who also mixed the track “The Fires”. The band plan to embark on a West coast tour Spring 2022 in support of their album release.
