It’s taken plenty of patience, self-belief and perhaps a little bit of luck for The Milk to get where they find themselves today. The four-piece made up of childhood friends Rick Nunn, Dan Legresley and siblings Mitch and Luke Ayling released their debut album, ‘Tales from the Thames’ in 2012 to much critical acclaim.
Although it covered all of their eclectic sensibilities, and earned them a loyal army of fans as well as mainstream radio play, the band felt they had lost sight of the music that really mattered to them – the soulful sounds of 1970’s, Bill Withers and Isaac Hayes, the soundtracks of Lalo Schifrin and Bill Conti and the mastery of The Isley Brothers.
New album ‘Favourite Worry’ sees the band exactly where they want to be, it’s an album delivered by a voice, and played by a band, that have let the voodoo loose and are speaking from their soul.
The Milk’s contemporary twist on classic soul, hip-hop and ska has already won a wealth of support, with backing from NME, The Guardia, Zane Lowe, Huey Morgan and even The Sun, The Milk are now ready to take centre stage.
“it’s an immersive experience you don’t want to end” The Guardian
