Single: Blushing - Weak

Blushing - Weak

Blushing - 'Weak'

Info: Blushing is an Austin, TX based dream pop / shoegaze quartet comprised of two husband and wife pairs that originated in the summer of 2015 when Michelle shared a few songs with long time friend Christina that she had been writing on guitar. A friendship quickly became a musical partnership as Christina, a classically trained vocalist, picked up a bass and together they evolved those rough songs into fully formed compositions. They then enlisted the talents of their spouses, Jake on drums, Noe on lead guitar and shortly after self-released their debut EP 'Tether' in January of 2017. 

Energized by positive reception, a growing fan base and a grip of new songs they headed back into the studio as soon as possible. They recorded their follow-up EP 'Weak' at Bad Wolf Recordings in Austin, TX. The album encompasses influences from all of the bands they collectively share a deep affection for such as Lush, Cocteau Twins, The Sundays, etc. 

Back in February we featured Texas shoegaze quartet Blushing's gorgeously dreamy single 'Tether' on our International Playlist and we've been in love with their sound since. Now in advance of their next EP release which is due out on the 26th January, they have shared the self-titled single 'Weak' which has us excited all over again. 'Weak' is a delightful blend of alternative 80's jangle-pop and soft-rock, watery guitar effects and slow-building percussion turn to fuzzed-out distortion and a celestial vocal chorus which kind of reminds me of the intro of the second track on Death in Vegas' Scorpio Rising album, 'Girls', so much loveliness in four and a half minutes.

'Weak' will be released digitally, on cassette and 12” vinyl January 26th 2018 on Austin Town Hall Records. Vinyl pre-order available now at athrecords.bandcamp.com/album/weak.
