On October 26th 2018 Blushing released their single “The Truth” (b/w “Sunshine”) both digitally and on 7″ pink vinyl via The Nothing Song Records. Recorded, mixed and produced by Elliott Frazier of Ringo Deathstarr.
The latest single to be released off the forthcoming release, is “So Many”. The song was inspired by the cycle of frustration and defeat Michelle witnessed her son go through while in school dealing with attention and concentration issues. She realized she possessed many of the same obstacles in her own daily life and that the wheel of procrastination, anxiety, and indifference turned for her as well.
