Blushing is an Austin, Texas-based dream-pop/shoegaze quartet comprised of two husband and wife pairs that share a love of making melodic, atmospheric music. Blushing formed in the summer of 2015 when, after a few years of writing songs on guitar, Michelle found a musical partner in friend Christina who brought her life-long classical vocal training and bass-playing prowess to the project.

They then enlisted the musical talents of their marital partners, Jake on drums and Noe on lead guitar. Their styles and influences converged and after a year of evolving those original songs and honing their musical spirit, they self-released their first EP on January 13th titled Tether. The EP was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Phillip Odom at Bad Wolf Recordings in Austin. The record encompasses influences from all of the bands Blushing collectively shares a deep affection for, including luminaries like Lush, Cocteau Twins, and The Sundays.

The Big Takeover is delighted to premiere the title song off Blushing’s new EP:
