Blush Club reveal date for debut EP
Following on from two recent single’s Glasgow-based Blush Club come out of the traps as lockdown lifts with debut EP, A Hill To Die On. The EP captures feelings of discontent for modern life all filtered through a jaunty guitar pop lens, portraying huge addictive qualities as Hamish Swanson’s attention grabbing, charismatic vocal delivery allows the sheer fun of this collection of tracks to be brought to the forefront.
Blush Club are a Scottish act based in Glasgow formed by Hamish Swanson, Conor Heafey and Cameron Gibb after meeting at a show one night at King Tut’s. Playing in bands respectively – The Vignettes, Josephine Sillars & The Manic Pixie Dreams and Conor Heafey & The Lovely Boys – they decided to start a new project drawing from their shared influences and tastes to create something more loosely related to bands such as Omni and Bodega. Bringing Craig Carrington-Porter and Phil Smith in on the project completed the raw and acrylic sound of Blush Club.
The two singles from the EP, the up-beat, rebel against stability anthem ‘Supermarket Spree’ and the chill, groove laden, unpredictable ‘Age of Information’ have cemented the five-piece as ones to keep an eye on, here the singles are bookmarked by the hooky, chant along title track and the building addictive coarseness of ‘West End (Is Corrupt)’, which can only go further to securing that claim.
