About: Blushes are a four-piece indie-RnB band based in Aylesbury, UK. Blending RnB and dream pop, the songs of Blushes journey through melancholy and romance. The band have recently been discovered by NME and were featured by their Under The Radar programme and from this, the band were personally approached by BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggart to play their track ‘To The Bone’. They have also received features and support from HMV, BPI and UK Music as well as being featured on London Live and BBC Introducing. The band have been fortunate enough to feature in NME’s 100 Artists for 2018 list and they also had a 4 page spread in the magazine. The band are currently gearing up for multiple releases and expansive live dates.
What Hidden Herd say: Blushes’ spry blend of RnB, indie-rock and dream-pop is an exuberant mix, with woozy licks and vivacious hooks bubbling over the top of a prismatic backdrop.
