Comprised of two husband and wife teams, Blushing is an Austin, TX based shoegaze / indie rock quartet formed in 2016 by friends Christina Carmona (vocals, bass) and Michelle Soto (guitar, vocals). The two incorporated their spouses Jacob Soto (drums) and Noe Carmona (guitar) bringing together an array of combined influences from bands like Elastica, Curve, Veruca Salt, Lush, and My Bloody Valentine.
Their debut EP "Tether" was released in 2017 followed by "Weak" in 2018 both engineered by Phillip Odom. In 2019 they released their debut LP “Blushing” on Wallflower Records. Engineered, produced and mixed by Elliott Frazier of Ringo Deathstarr. They partnered with Frazier again to record their sophomore LP “Possessions” released in 2022 on Kanine Records. This album saw the band actualizing long-held dreams of working with Miki Berenyi of Lush and Mark Gardener of Ride with a marked display of growth in the band’s ability to expand beyond genre limits.
The band just finished recording their third LP which demonstrates blistering forces of psych-pop, dream rock, indie pop and beyond. At the forefront is a focus on melody, hooks and surprises.
