Austin dream pop / shoegaze quartet Blushing have released their single “The Truth” (b/w “Sunshine”) both digitally and on 7” pink vinyl via The Nothing Song Records. Recorded, mixed and produced by Elliott Frazier of Ringo Deathstarr both “The Truth” and “Sunshine” showcase a growth in the band’s expansive, cascading sound laden with ethereal vocals and fervent guitar, simultaneously capable of reining in with emotional and melodic space. Their single comes ahead of their debut full length slated to be released in early 2019.

Comprised of two husband and wife teams, 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 husbands Jake Soto on drums and Noe Carmona on lead guitar.Their debut EP “Tether” was self-released in 2017, followed by their EP “Weak” on Austin Town Hall Records in January of 2018. Gaining infectious momentum, Blushing have since been asked to play Athens Pop Fest and have shared stages with the likes of La Luz, Sunflower Bean, Broncho, Snail Mail and more.

You can catch Blushing this March in Austin, Texas when they will be back for their second official SXSW showcase, then soon after they will be embarking on their first West Coast tour.

“Texan shoegazers Blushing are on DJ Kevin Cole’s #MusicThatMatters podcast! “Sunshine” is a dreamy track that brings this international playlist back to the States.” –

“With gorgeous harmonies, confident hooks and assured production, Blushing have truly leveled up.” – DKFM

“The Truth sounds if anything more lush, more dreamy and more intriguing than ever before. The avalanche of retro-janglers that came from everywhere a few years back may have thankfully slowed down, but with bands like Blushing, around there’s life in this shoe-gaze revival yet!” – For the Rabbits
