Take four lads from Dublin and throw in a heavy sonic influence from The 1975 and you’ve got Milk.
Formed of Mark McKenna (vocals), Conor Gorman (lead guitar), Morgan Wilson (drums), and Conor King (bass), the indie-pop quartet has so far got two tracks to their name – “Drama Queen” and the more recent “Temperature”.
Speaking of their latest single, the band said:
Temperature is about the changes felt between two people, whether in situations of love or lust. It’s also about the unity that’s felt between two people during sex.
So far, Milk. has been keeping their aesthetic consistent, with the artwork for both their singles shot on polaroid with the title in a black, handwritten scrawl. It’s reminiscent of the kind of music you’d embed on your Tumblr page – in a good way.
The band started out in the most classic and organic of ways, with Mark and Conor bouncing around song ideas, then recruiting drummer Morgan for a session and finally asking Conor to join the band too, describing this moment as ‘it’s a bit like asking someone to be your girlfriend’.
The boys recently sold out a headline show at Whelan’s in their hometown of Dublin, and have some shows in the pipeline. Watch this space.
