Trax: Blushh, “I Don’t Wanna Leave”

0 Comments 07 May 2017

Trax highlights the songs that need to be in your rotation.

by Daniel Barron



Take it from a guy who’s been covering creatives for more than half a decade: eventually you tire of being a spectator. And it becomes time to get wet. Such has been the experience of Shab Ferdowsi, the young photographer, button slinger, and all-around entrepreneur that founded the music blog/event production banner Beating Lights in 2013, while she was still a student at USC. From its humble beginnings as a Tumblr page, Beating Lights has evolved into a hip junction point between rising local artists and musicians across LA county. And then it was time to get in the pool.

Next month, Ferdowsi drops the debut EP of her 90s alt-rock infused music project Blushh. The release is titled It’s Fine, and today in Trax you can stream one of the songs off of it, perhaps best enjoyed alone in your room, writing in your diary while romantically pining for someone.


Ferdowsi writes:

“I Don’t Wanna Leave was the third song I wrote when I first started writing in 2015. Never would I ever have thought my friends would like it enough to want to produce it, or a full EP for that matter. It’s pretty cool doing this more creative side now, especially with the people I have been thus far. Normally, I’m the one standing in the front rows of their shows, singing their songs and plugging their bands, but now they’re playing my music? Singing my songs? Coming to my shows? Weird…but extra sweet.”


See Blushh on Friday, May 12th at The Hi Hat in Highland Park when she performs as part of WASI’s EP release show, alongside Maddie Ross and Goon.
