London lot Milk Disco have released a contorted dancefloor-filler in ‘Weekender’.
Milk Disco have decked out various venue’s across the capital including The Windmill, Brixton, Walthamstow’s old cinema Mirth, Marvel and Maud and next week will take to the the Montague Arms in Peckham, headlining their third curated evening of entertainment.
The throbbing strut behind Weekender acts as somewhat of a heightened heartbeat for front man Matt Robinson’s vocals, which flow through the song part self-exploration part exasperation. Weekender builds from spoken word to outright rage, leading to an intoxicating wall of noise with the guitar coming up somewhere between the rhythmic restraint of Graham Coxen and the outright fury of Girl Band‘s Alan Duggan.
On the 6th of December the band will embark on their third self curated evening of live music named ‘Welcome To The Milk Disco #3’ at The Montague Arms in south London, sharing the bill on the evening will be Barbudo, 60s Space Engine and Adults.
“‘Weekender’ is about joining in with people at the end of the working week and feeling unhappy with your life. Getting caught in those typical motions of reality, doing nothing about it and being consumed by the banality of your choices.”
Cold Fins – ‘Cold Fins EP’ – Touching surf-pop from south London.
Barbudo – ‘Secret Admirer’ – Revel in this groove-ridden summer number.
