The Melbourne synth-pop trio Blusher took the music scene by storm in 2023, establishing themselves as ones to watch with their debut EP “Should We Go Dance?.” Their success was fast-moving and thrilling. Notably, with support slots for international acts AURORA and Tove Lo on their Australian tours. This was followed by an incredible tour across the UK and Europe with Icelandic musician Daði Freyr. Evidently, it’s clear that Blusher’s preferred musical styling is keeping up with their fast-moving momentum. And that’s why it’s no surprise they’re already back with new music in the form of “Rave Angel“.
If you haven’t heard the term “Rave Angel” before, let me tell you about it. This is namely because the phrase was coined by the band to describe Charli XCX, whom they encountered during a writing trip in LA. The story goes, one night, while searching for a club to dance in, they stumbled upon a secret DJ set by Charli XCX and AJ Cook. So Lauren, Jade, and Miranda from the band took full advantage of the opportunity and experienced an unforgettable night of partying. And thus, a rave angel was born.
“Rave Angel“, a phrase we coined while describing how Charli looked behind the decks that night, is the song you play to your friend in the Uber that convinces them to stay out and see what unfolds“.
Blusher’s latest song “Rave Angel” features a unique ravey synth-pop sound that is notably distinct from their previous EP, “Should We Go Dance?“. With the addition of Blusher’s sassy vocals, the song emulates the vivaciousness of Charli XCX’s distinctive character. This raises an interesting question – is Blusher paying a little homage to Charli XCX and considering her as a prospective tour buddy? The prospect is hard to ignore, and it would be an exciting opportunity should it happen.
Unquestionably, Blusher is an unstoppable powerhouse! In an incredibly short time, they’ve already captivated audiences and proven themselves an amazing support act. With all the success they’ve experienced in 2023, there’s no doubt they’re on the path to even greater things. Bearing in mind, “Rave Angel” is an incredibly euphoric track. Keep an eye on them. Their knack for creating catchy, alluring pop time and time again, surely makes it impossible for them to go unnoticed.
