HOT MILK Release Music Video for Debut Single ‘Awful Ever After’
Manchester’s newest emo power-pop band premiered their debut single, Awful Ever After, on the Radio 1 Rock Show prior to releasing their first music video.
Hot Milk seemingly came out of nowhere, releasing their debut single just days ago but already on tour supporting You Me At Six in Europe. Their track Awful Ever After is, simply put, a sad song with a happy melody. The guitars rip through your speakers as dual vocal harmonies draw you in. Han Mee, one of their vocalists, explains:
[The song is] a resistance to the rabbit hole that is sadness and all the habits that come with it.
The music video looks better than your average debut, with a pink and blue light show and enough variation in the visuals to stay interesting. The only thing slightly questionable was the use of people covered in black body paint, like a low budget version of Biffy Clyro’s Black Chandelier video. Not the best execution, but definitely not the worst video we’ve seen this month.
Hot Milk have recently received support from Stand Atlantic and You Me At Six, the latter even taking the quartet on tour with them this month. It’s safe to say that the dual vocal duties definitely make Hot Milk stand out as not just another emo pop band.
