Blusher Announces Debut EP “Should We Go Dance?”, Shares New Song “Backbone”
Melbourne-based pop trio Blusher, consisting of Miranda Ward, Lauren Coutts and Jade Ingvarson-Favretto, announced their debut EP “Should We Go Dance?” would be released on July 14, 2023 via Atlantic Records / Warner Music Australia.
From the EP, the band unveiled a new song “Backbone” on May 3, 2023, following “Dead End” released back in February.
The track was written by Jade Ingvarson-Favretto, Lauren Coutts, and Miranda Ward. Produced by Lauren Coutts.
Blusher explained how they wanted to “sing about the way that heartbreak can strengthen and empower friendships. It's a fiery, energetic love song to the friends who have your back through it all. Backbone is aptly named, its themes of power, confidence and deep friendship are the foundation of our band.”
- The accompanying music video was directed by Zoee Marsh and Alexandra Galloway.
They said, “when we first wrote the song, we had visions of 80s workout routines/Charlie's Angels/a “choose your fighter” moment in an anime video game. It made us think about what our video game characters would be. We saw ourselves channelling an element in each of our verses. Miranda's verse is powered by fire and lit by red brake lights, Jade's, a watery moment with a tear filled champagne glass, whilst Lauren's air bending bridge propels you to the dance floor and breathes new life into you.”
The trio will support Swedish singer-songwriter Tove Lo's Dirt Femme Tour in Australia on July 19 and July 25, 2023.
