Blush’ko – The Artist Formerly Known As ‘Blasko’ Unveils New Single ‘Like A Heartbeat
Following on from touring Australia with Flint Eastwood, Melbourne-based Macedonian-born artist Blush’ko (FKA Blasko) has just revealed his new single ‘Like a Heartbeat’ – another smooth and sultry slice lifted from his forthcoming mixtape ‘Blush’ko In Love Pt. 2’.
Produced by long-time collaborator Tentendo, ‘Like a Heartbeat’ is a dreamy melting pot of dance, RnB and down-tempo electronica. The sophisticated track glides along effortlessly with its groove-laden rhythmic section, swirling synths and soul-infused vocals.
Blush’ko describes the motivation behind ‘Like a Heartbeat’:
“This song was the easiest song I have ever written. Tentendo and I were away on a writing camp and I walked into the room he was working in and heard this beat. I immediately started writing and melodies were pouring out of me. I sat on the bed and started writing a concept – the natural summer feel of the song and my general feeling of being in paradise.
At the time, I was seeing somebody who was really special to me, and all I wanted to do was express my gratitude for her presence in my life. I couldn’t believe that she was with someone like me. This song is about growth with a partner, the image that I get in my head is like a dead field of nothingness and then two flowers growing side by side at the same pace. Like a Heartbeat”.
‘Blush’ko In Love Pt.1’ (released July 2018) was a journey of love and heartbreak, which saw support via tastemakers Jamz Supernova’s, Thissongissick, La Belle Musique and Dancing Astronaut. Following the release, Blush’ko shared stages around Australia and New Zealand with Jhene Aiko and SG Lewis, and sung alongside DC rapper Goldlink on his triple j Like a Version performance of ‘Herside Story’ with Billy Davis and The Good Lords.
In November, Blush’ko turned the page on part two of the ‘Blush’ko In Love’ story with the release of ‘Japanese Hotel‘; a hazy recollection of a smoke filled dream.
‘Blush’ko in Love Pt.2’ makes its way into the world in May 2019 via Majestic Casual/Yunizon Records.
