Gothenburg-based twosome Pink Milk have unveiled their latest blast of intense shoegaze.
A Swedish folk standard (which translates as "Ship Of A Dream"), it's Pink Milk's take on Staffan Percy’s 1979 version of a Bo Setterlind poem and despite it being a commission for Swedish television it's a dark and unhinged take on the original. In fact, the TV bosses were so concerned by the track it never actually made it to broadcast.
Maria (drums, vocals) and Edward (guitar, vocals) trade strained, impassioned and reverb-laden verses over flat, ominous drums and stark stabs of detuned guitars. It's gloomy and delicious in equal measure.
