Siblings Rebecca and Joshua Williams grew up performing in a church where their father is a pastor. They've since directed their talents outside the church toward psychedelic rock: Rebecca sings and plays guitar with Joshua on drums in The Savage Blush, along with bassist Brian Wyatt. The Denver trio released the "Dust" EP last year and followed up with a two new singles in 2017.

Singer and guitarist Rebecca Williams on the band's musical direction:

"I think we all strive to be better and better and better and better. ... I don't think any of us like the idea of being stuck in this psychedelic rock box. But that's what it is. And you can almost play anything and it'll be sort of psychedelic rock!"
