Los Angeles outfit Milly announce the forthcoming arrival of debut album ‘Eternal Ring’, set for release September 30th via cult indie label Dangerbird Records (Grandaddy, Swervedriver), and share lead single ‘Nullify’, listen below: 

Milly capture this 90’s nostaligic essence in the heart of their new single, deep and raw cuts resonate throughout the rich atmosphere. The chugging notes and complex bass end fuse with the progressive drum build ups and join the crashing cymbals, whilst the immersive vocal melodies that sweep throughout the instrumentation. Twinkling notes add this unique charm to the captivating journey, lifting up the intense tonality which alongside the vocal tones add such a depth of affection into the vision.

With immense acclaim throughout the press landscape (NME, NPR, Clash, Paste, Gigwise, Beats Per Minute) greeting their EP release, Milly’s tremendous sense of promise is reflected in today’s first LP reveal, with further new material on its way across the summer months.

Detailing the record’s crushing lead single, Dyer explains: “​​The song is about people who think they can solve other people’s problems for them when they can’t even balance their own shit. We want to aid others which is admirable but first we need to check in on ourselves to decide whether or not that’s actually possible. Anyone can be a hero if they try…
