Blushing: The Fires

The Fires is the third single ahead of the upcoming sophomore album by Texan shoegazers, Blushing. Possessions arrives on February 18th, 2022 through Kanine Records, produced by Elliott Frazier (Ringo Deathstarr), and mastered by Mark Gardener (Ride).

After the classic shoegaze pop disposition of first single Blame on which the band collaborated with Lush's Miki Berenyi, and the vibrant and bright Sour Punch which has their nineties indie pop influences written all over it, Blushing return to their darker, goth-tinged and post punk-inclined  leanings, which they have clearly demonstrated in the past.

The Fires is the only track on Possessions which is both mastered and mixed by Mark Gardener. Michelle Soto (guitar, vocals) explains: “We knew Mark could bring a special element to The Fires. However, just as the mixing and mastering process was wrapping up in February 2021 we lost all power and water for over a week due to a freak blizzard that devastated much of Texas. It caused a most unexpected delay in our ability to communicate back and forth with Mark about the track, who expressed concern for the band’s well being as news of the storm reached all the way to the UK. Eventually the snow melted, lights and internet returned and what we received in the final mix was a punchy, glimmering track, a perfect balance to the dark, brooding tone of the song.

In support of the new album, Blushing have announced an April 2022 west coast tour alongside Letting Up Despite Great Faults.
