Introducing Milky Chance

Wednesday 25 June 2014
Words Spindle

Formed in Kassal, back in 2012, the duo comprises of singer/songwriter Clemens Rehbein and DJ Philipp Dausch who take influences from reggae, folk and electronica to create their own alternative pop. They met at an ‘Advanced Music Course’ so they must know what they’re doing right?

Last summer, the German pair Milky Chance, released their self-produced debut album ‘Sadnecessary’ on their own label, Lichtdicht Records. Within a few weeks, lead single ‘Stolen Dance’ had reached number one on Hype Machine and went on to achieve the number one spot in the iTunes charts in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and Belgium. This killer track has now made its way into Radio 1’s B playlist and with over 41,000 views on YouTube there is no doubt that this track is getting some serious loving.

To see them live is not a long wait as the boys will be in the UK this July to play Lattitude -keep your eye on Milky Chance website for future dates.
