Blind Spot EP (10-inch Vinyl & Download Code)
Release Date: 01/04/2016
Lush have announced details of the release of the Blind Spot EP on Friday 15th April 2016 on their own Edamame Records.
Talking about the recording of the EP, Miki Berenyi commented:
It certainly took sometime to come together, but once we were in the studio, everything came together incredibly quickly. It was great fun!
It's been a long time since I've written Lush lyrics, and I realised early on with this EP that what I wrote about then is not what I feel comfortable writing about now. My perspective, and what is close to my heart, has changed, and I think that's conveyed in the songs.
Bassist Phil King added:
I know I’m biased, but I work for a music magazine and so much of the music I hear played in the office sounds non-descript or derivative. Emma has this way of writing unusual chord changes and manages to weave lovely melodies over the top, and it immediately sounds distinctive, like Lush.
Formed in London in 1988 by childhood friends Emma Anderson and Miki Berenyi, Lush also included Chris Acland on drums and Phil King on bass (originally Steve Rippon, who left in 1990), and were widely acknowledged as one of the pioneers of a sound that was to be christened ‘shoegaze’.
