The first song to arrive from the EP – Medicinal Love – which was released as a stand alone single, available on bandcamp, on the 13th finds milkd referencing back to the gently blended keys, vocal and guitar of their eponymous EP, though with a more wistful footstep as the sparse piano forms a pondering brow.

Following their journey the past approaching ten months has been a pleasure and I look forward to the, as yet, untitled EP.

milkd – Come Out – Single Review

The Scottish acoustic-blend duo milkd were introduced earlier this year.

The latest single Come Out (available on bandcamp) is of different countenance than previous material featured as the singular vocal is given more largesse in which to shine in the spotlight and the audience resultingly rests in greater appreciation of a superlative voice, though to denigrate the composition which is reliant on counter melodic guitar to afford the song its enticing ebb and flow would be remiss as sans the dichotomy of pace and chord structures the vocal would be lost in a crowd.

It is for the ability of milkd to identify that every element of their music is of equal important to allow the output to have its impact, even though to many the main focus will be the engrossing vocal, others of us are more fixated on the intricacy of a guitar which slips in and out major and minor chords with no hesitation or fracturing, which I particularly commend.

Unhurriedly drifting through the room milkd deliver music which invites the listener to lay back on a soft blanket and allow the music to wind away the stresses of the day as the reverberating echo of guitar, softly brushed vocal and warming keys cosset the ears.

From the four track EP (available on bandcamp) the second – When I Get To You.
