Austin-based, shoegazers Blushing will see the release of their debut EP Tether on vinyl for the first time in stores February 10, 2023. Available for preorder today, the limited (700 copies) pink colored vinyl is packaged as a double EP, paired with sophomore EP Weak on the b side. New cover art and mp3 download.
Blushing’s first step out into the musical world showcases shimmering guitars chords and infectious choruses, which sent shivers through the deam-pop community upon its original release. After receiving such a positive response from Tether, Blushing quickly got to work writing and recording a follow up EP. Weak, a bit of a misnomer, solidified the group’s reputation for writing catchy hooks over dreamy, soaring and at times extremely heavy instrumentation, which resulted in the band finding their signature sound.
This release follows up Blushing’s 2022 full album release, Possessions, an album with charismatic vocals, dreamy guitar hooks, swirling bass lines, filled with dream pop intensity and produced by Elliott Frazier (Ringo Deathstarr). Lead single “Blame” featured Miki Berenyi (Lush) and Mark Gardener (Ride) lent a hand on mixing and mastering.
