This latest drop is the first from the indie-pop outfit's forthcoming 2023 project, seeing the quartet take on production as well as performance.
'I Might Bore You.' follows the techno soaked layered style intrinsic to milk.'s sound. Featuring heavy 1975 influence, the drop shows a mature musicality to the band, with airy vocals, fierce electric guitar and strong techno beats dominating.
Speaking to the meaning behind the track, lead singer Mark McKenna explained: "'I Might Bore You.' is about the suddenness of which people can change. It’s about the different speeds we burgeon at and fearing your own personal growth may be the catalyst for losing someone close."
Founded by members Mark, Conor Gorman, Conor King and Morgan Wilson, milk. launched on New Years’ Day in 2019 and released their debut hit single 'Drama Queen' in 2019, which has since amassed over 2.17 million streams on Spotify. The band's debut collection 1, The EP was released in June 2020, and they have since released a slew of singles and a second EP titled 2, The EP.
Recently coming off a sold-out UK and Ireland headline run in 2022 and supporting Orla Gartland for select dates, the band are set to announce more headline dates soon in support of their forthcoming project due out early 2023.
'I Might Bore You.' is the first single from this project, and also the first self-produced song released by the band.
Drummer Morgan Wilson spoke about the last few months of the band, saying: "Returning to live shows has shown us how much the listenership and their intensity has grown over the last couple of years while we were unable to play live.
"This was really special for us, and certainly made us aware of our ability to affect and relate to people with our music - realising that it matters to others as much as it matters to us was a very heartening thing.
"With our new releases, we hope to simplify and distill our approach to songwriting and deliver a work that’s distinctive and honest, clearly us, while also pushing our sound in a new direction.
"We aim to develop as much as we can as musicians and friends in the process, and we can only hope you love them like we do."
Having snuck a peak of what's to come from milk., Hot Press are certain the next few months will be exciting for fans and the band alike.
