TUNE Pink Milk - Detroit
”a devilish congregation of swirling shoegaze guitars, beats that shake the foundation of time, howling, windswept drones, and vocals laced with barbed wire. It's unfathomably dark in places, but Pink Milk have an innate knack for pop hooks - it's wildly addictive, stuffed to the brim with melodies to make you sing and rhythms to make you move.”
- The Line of Best Fit
”Immediately the massive drums draw you in until the colossal hooks and titanic melodies swirl about until you are frozen to the spot. ”
”Rumour has it there is more music in the pipeline for 2016, and after hearing this on loop for an hour I’m glad, as Pink Milk have it and it would be a shame for them to hibernate in a studio when they could be drip feeding up titbits until their album is ready for release.”
”gloomy, glittering sound casts a languid, moody spell that demands repeated listens”
- Skint Mag
Scandinavian duo Pink Milk are due to release their first original song this July entitled 'Detroit', which follows the release of their interpretation of Foreigner’s 1984 classic hit ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’.
'Detroit' was recorded in a barn on the Swedish island of Gothland and will be released on one of the biggest Swedish indie labels Woah Dad! Records.
The track has received some good online support for a new outfit, turning heads in the online sphere at The Line of Best Fit, Skint Mag, Thisyearinmusic, London On The Inside, and Drunken Werewolf, as well as being included as part of DIY Magazine’s Neu Bulletin, which pinpoints the best of the week’s new music.
Influences are mainly 80s and 90s music like Dead Can Dance, Jesus & Mary Chain and Cocteau Twins and movies like True Romance and Only Lovers Left Alive.
”The song is written to a childhood friend
We were kids trying to be cool,
smoking candy, blowing fake smoke in the air,
dreaming about freedom.”
