Considering the playful ease with which Blush Always sings, plays, performs, yes: inhabits her songs on her debut album "You Deserve Romance," you don't want to believe for a moment that this woman has supposedly been doing all this for barely two years: playing guitar, singing along with it, performing with a band. In much the same way as Snail Mail, Soccer Mommy or Beabadoobee, Blush Always has distilled the essence of punk-inspired indie guitar music of the past 40 years with great pop sensibility.
