Milk People have been steadily making a name for themselves in the local circuit this year with shows at 12th and Porter, The Rutledge and The Basement, but it wasn’t until this week that their single “Steeples” caught our attention here at No Country. The opening guitar riff has a twang that instantly pulls you in, and the fuzzy vocals throw back to the days of Franz Ferdinand, when alternative rock was swiftly on the rise. Maybe it hasn’t been quite long enough for this to be considered ‘retro,’ but either way, the shared male and female vocals against powerful mid-tempo tracks puts a current twist on a musical style that needs to continue to thrive.
You can find this track on their debut EP Invisible Ink at the link below, and catch them celebrating its release this Saturday night at The End with Down Boy, The Whippoorwhills, and Secret Club. The $5 cover gets you access to the show and a free CD.
