about

"Last year was the culmination of years of work, desire and belief, not only from us, but also from the amazing people that helped bring our musical vision to the fold. There were so many highlights but the stand out moment has to be the autumn tour, which climaxed at the Scala show. The 900 people that made the journey that night; and the thousands that came to see us on the road, left us truly humbled. I can't tell you how much I missed the visceral existence of life on the road, nothing but your music, your best friends and your amazing fans to think about. It was a privilege to have been nominated as one of BBC6 Music's Albums of the Year. The nomination was a seal of approval, vindication and a line in the sand. We set out to change the way some people thought about The Milk and with 6Music's endorsement we laid a few demons to rest.

In truth those demons are buried throughout this record, and when it came to decide the next song to release in this story of ours, there was one that instantly fit the bill.

'Loneliness Has Eyes' was a very different song when we reached the Island, its safe to say that it is arguably the track that Paul Butler helped carve out of the medieval timbers the most. It is covered in free playing and improvisation and took several takes to perform with the feel, authenticity and musicality we so desperately wanted to attain. This is highlighted by the need for Nunny to lie in the lightless studio, flat on his back and whisper the vocals down the Mic. The song is an intimate and personal portrait about loss and is coupled with the tightest groove we could muster."

about

The Milk Wickford, UK

Four life-long friends who went from forming their first band in an Essex school to playing countless working mens’ clubs and finally becoming The Milk.

The Milk’s much anticipated Paul Butler (The Bees, Michael Kiwanuka) produced sophomore album will be released 2015,
examining their soulful roots.

Honest, classic song-writing heavily influenced by 70’s Isley Brothers, Bill Withers and more.
