Blushing are a double husband and wife dreampop band from Austin, TX. Their debut EP Tether has all the trappings of the genre - slow waves of guitar, a floatng bass, dry sounding drums, organ like keyboard flourishes and airy vocals. The kind of music to close your eyes to and trying not to think about everyday hassles.
Their textures and smart use of echo are spot on. Tether doesn't sound like a debut by a band trying to find their bearings. They know where they are going, off to a better place where dreams can come true. It's pretty clear that Tether means connecting, not restraining, in their book.
