"Hailing from Charleston, SC, Milky White are a female-led quartet whose sound echo some of the more subdued pop-driven styles of 90?s shoegaze and even some post-Smashing Pumpkins quietness. Think of maybe Silversun Pickups with female vocals at the forefront and a fearless approach to let the guitars get as noisy as possible. But all the while maintain a dreamy and languid restraint. It’s definitely an example of indie pop as its finest.
Milky White will see their debut 7? EP released via Bitter Melody Records on June 10th. You can now listen to one of the tracks on the EP, “Uncontested Divorce On The Grounds Of Extreme Cruelty (December 17, 1964)” below. If this one song is any indication, the we can’t wait how dreamy the rest of the 4-song EP will be. Milky White will head out on tour shortly after the EP’s release.
Oh, and by the way, the band describes their sound as “90?s teen movie house party jams”. Well, I have to agree wholeheartedly with that and then some. Definitely evokes the finer and more heart-wrenching, warm fuzzies sounds and feels of 90?s alternative music. But it’s today, right here, right now" - Juan Diniz The 1st Five
