Meet Blush Face! They’re a Richmond band that delivers dulcet indie rock with solid pop sensibilities and lyrics you’ll never stop singing in your head. The band is made up of Allie Smith (vocals/guitar), Drew Barnocky (drums), Evan Hoffman (guitar), and Billy Bacci (bass). Having released their first album on Trrrash Records (formerly Bad Grrrl Records), the band is now gearing up for another exciting new release. With songs about the complexities of romance and swallowing hard truths, Blush Face still maintains an effortless effervescence.
How would you describe your music to someone who had never heard music before?
BF: Dark but bright and sad but light lullaby pop rocks. Melodic lil bubbles that swim their way through your past & future memories. Park your car in the middle of an empty field and be okay with feeling your feelings because it's totally fine to be a human with wants and dreams.
When did you start making music?
BF: I started as a young kid. I learned the violin and was obsessed with musicals because I was a super dramatic little being who would dance and sing along to Céline Dion in my room and write my own heartbreak ballads even though I didn't know much about love. Blush Face the band was born in the summer of 2016.
