Blush Response is an
Indie Rockband with varied influences based in Orlando, Florida, USA.
Singer and guitarist Jesse Willard met multi-instrumentalist Isaac Pineda and immediately shared a mutual love for music. After discovering bassist Merrick Beatty and having no luck finding drummers in the surrounding area, Pineda decided to switch to drums from guitar/keyboards and the group began to refine their style. Most recently, they have placed an emphasis on sound density by using a multitude of
effect pedals, loops, and employing a strong sense of dynamics. This reached a new height when guitarist/keyboardist Shane Bellotti was soon added to complete the lineup.
The band is currently rehearsing/writing/recording their debut "Lift me up on angels wings".
The band is hard to pin down as far as musical genres, but they seem to lean towards the dense-yet-melodic
dream popof My Bloody Valentineand Slowdive, the off-beat and calculated noise of Slintand Sonic Youth, and the psychedelicinfused art-rockof a younger Smashing Pumpkinsamong others. Their catalog of songs include sudden shifts of timing, key, and their structures, while typically unconventional, retain a keen sense of pop songwriting. The influence of retro-futurismin literature, pop culture, and movies is also subtly hinted at through Willard's lyrics.

Vangelis - Blush Response
Blush Response is a track featured on the
Blade Runner soundtrack, composed by Vangelis, for the film Blade Runner. In the film, suspected replicantswere examined by a Voight-Kampffmachine, which measured empathetic, physical, and emotional reactions. The test subject's ability (or inability) to have a proper blush response was one reaction. Orlandoband Blush Response derives at least part of the inspiration for their band name from this movie.
