HOT MILK Drop Fresh Single ‘June Gloom’
If you’re into pop-punk, emo power-pop, or a “musical vortex of opportunity and complexity”, Hot Milk’s uplifting and catchy new release, June Gloom, is for you.
Despite the triggering Windows 98 error message sound that kicks us off, Hot Milk have done it again: June Gloom rips. It is the perfect blend of pure, 2000s pop-punk with the modern high-tuned guitar heard from bands like The 1975 and The Band CAMINO. Listen for the quick timing change in the bridge. It’s a seriously satisfying moment leading into the final chorus and unexpectedly enhances the song. Lyrically, the song is bright and inspiring for anyone feeling like they have a rain cloud over their head or who are looking for motivation to keep going.
Speaking on their new single, co-vocalists Han Mee and Jim Shaw said:
‘June Bloom’ is a song about falling through hard times, but clinging onto a little bit of hope at the end. It’s the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s being in a situation where you should be happy, and feeling guilty for not feeling happy, but also trying to reassure yourself that there is going to be good. This is going to work out.
Make sure you watch the video to the end for some extra motivation from Hot Milk: It’s always summer somewhere.
