Blushing releases Slyce, their most experimental collab yet. Sugarcoat out May 3rd

Austin based alternative, dream pop band Blushing releases Slyce today, which sees them dipping into the psychedelic realm. The hypnotic drive of Slyce broadcasts Blushing at their most sonically experimental, so it is only fitting that it was recorded in an experimental way.

The last song to be recorded during the “Sugarcoat” sessions, the band’s only option for recording was to utilize the Austin Community College recording studio where producer and engineer Elliott Frazier was teaching. Utilizing Elliott’s classroom time to double as a recording session meant the band performed and recorded in front of a classroom of kids and adults, while Elliott explained to the class what he was doing at the console. Blushing says, “It made for an interesting experience and no doubt contributed to giving the track a unique sound of its own.

The songs’ bridge features an extra special touch from Christina’s dad, Carlos Fernandez, a classical pianist. This was a very meaningful collaboration as Christina was raised in a music filled household with the sound of her dad’s piano playing emanating through the house at all hours of the day.

The accompanying Slyce music video is a lively, technicolor affair, visually inspired by something you would find in a 70’s horror film. Stream it today and preorder Sugarcoat (out May 3rd).
