TUNE Girlhood - Milk & Honey
GIRLHOOD RETURN WITH NEW SINGLE ‘MILK & HONEY’
“A duo making some of London's best new music” - Pigeons & Planes
“Girlhood are firmly on the path to greatness” - Wonderland
“Girlhood are very much in a league of their own” - The Line Of Best Fit
London based duo Girlhood, Tessa Cavanna and Christian Pinchbeck, are back with their first taste of new music since the release of 2017’s ‘Girlhood Vol. 1’ EP. Returning with a confident progression on the sound that made them one of last year’s most exciting prospects, ‘Milk & Honey’ is a short, seductive example of classic R&B that treads through uncharted waters with ease.
As the track opens, traditional piano sounds play alongside spliced sax solos, introducing ‘Milk & Honey’’s sonic duality. Vocalist Tessa muses on internal battles between her head and her heart, another night out gone wrong, in her now-trademark soulful yearning while blending heartfelt R&B instrumentation with deft The Avalanches-esque audio patchworks.
On the track, the group said: “This song is about the complicated relationships we have with ourselves and our own narrative. ‘Milk & Honey’ is to say I know I feel what I feel, and that's ok in this moment, but it won't make or break me…”
In support of brand new music, Girlhood are set to perform a host of live shows throughout 2018. See below for a full list of confirmed dates.
