Milky Chance

Before it can burst into flame, every fire needs an initial spark. For Milky Chance, that flickering introduction came a little over three years ago when they released their now infamous debut track “Stolen Dance”. After its release, Milky Chance ascended to the coveted number one spot in several countries, became the “most blogged about act” on Hype Machine and released the successful follow-up singles “Down By The River” and “Flashed Junk Mind” off of their self-produced album Sadnecessary.

As a result the duo, comprised of childhood friends Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch, left their small hometown of Kassel, Germany for multiple tours that took them across several continents, to the fields of Glastonbury, the desert of Coachella, and the stage of Lollapalooza. It’s this journey, replete with the push and pull of emotion that comes from being uprooted that forms the basis of their new album ‘Blossom’.

Home, and the feeling of being entrenched in the foundation of one place, isn’t just a necessity – it’s a human need. “As an artist you fuel a lot of creativity by jumping into the bus and going somewhere new, but it’s also about being rooted somewhere”, says Clemens. Perhaps even more pertinent though is this: in the years between the release of Sadnecessary and this new album, Clemens welcomed someone new into his life – his daughter.

The first single to rise from this period of reflection is “Cocoon”, a track that’s about “trying to find a place where you can be yourself and not be distracted; to slow down and reflect on yourself”.

Like their previous album, there’s no doubt that Blossom will enter the ears of the music world with an unrelenting force – and their hearts.

MILKY CHANCE ARE BACK WITH NEW SONG “EGO”

After releasing their hit single “Cocoonin November last year (#12 in triple j’s Hottest 100) and “Doing Good” earlier this year, Milky Chance have today released “Ego”, another taste of their forthcoming album “Blossom”.

The latest offering from the German two-piece does not differ from their thoughtful and catchy lyrics, it’s a song about distance that is impossible to overcome. In classic Milky Chance form, the track is an earworm of the best kind.

Listen to the bouncy new single now:

Blossom will be released on March 17, 2017 (giving you enough time to learn the lyrics for Groovin the Moo!) and is available for pre-order now. However, if you’re like us and just can’t get enough of them, the duo have released an interactive website where you can delve into the making of Milky Chance, how they make music and what’s behind their new album. Check it out!

P.S. It’s Friday, so lets flashback to this clip of the duo performing Taylor Swifts “Shake It Off” for triple j’s Like A Version back in 2005. It’s still so good!
