BIO: Comprised of two husband and wife teams, Blushing is an Austin, TX based dream pop quartet that 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 bi was self-released in 2017, followed by their EP “Weak” on Austin Town Hall Records in January of 2018. Their self-titled debut LP “Blushing” was released September 2019 on Wallflower Records.
Previous Notable Press:

‘Their debut LP produced and recorded by Elliot Frazier (Ringo Deathstarr), is a heady mix of lush shoegaze supplemented with gorgeous ethereal vocals and blasts of sonic decadence.” Rough Trade
