Just in time for the winter cold to let go of it’s final grasp on the northeastern United States, Danish alternative pop artist, M.I.L.K., premiered the video for his latest single “Slow Emotions” with New York-based tastemakers, Baeble Musicthis morning. Tropical drums and laid back vibes set a warm, beachy tone on “Slow Emotions” – and the visual does a great job of capturing the vibrancy that the track creates. You can check out the video now on Vevo and the track is also available for purchase and streaming here.
Quote from M.I.L.K about “Slow Emotions” Video:
“This was the first song I wrote for the EP. When I started I knew I wanted to keep the beach vibe of my first EP, but this time all of the songs should be made for “dancing on the beach” rather than “chilling at the beach”. So based on this dogma I wrote Slow Emotions. The lyrics has this dual function of being both a classic love song about two strangers meeting on the dance floor in a flirt that gradually heats up as the song progress, but the song can also be heard as sort of a hint for all of us to react on the rising temperatures and abandon our “slow emotions” towards the melting poles etc.”
Following his viral single “If We Want To”, which has amassed over 2.5 million streams, and debut EP which has garnered over 6 million streams since it’s release last year, the Danish alt. pop artist returned last month with “Slow Emotions”. “Slow Emotions” is a summery affair that expands the singular sound of his unique producing style while building on the natural charm of his voice. “Slow Emotion” is the first single from M.I.L.K’s sophomore EP, Maybe I Love Kokomo, due out May 25th on Play Nice Records.
Copenhagen’s M.I.L.K. announced himself last year with the glorious ‘If We Want To’ which received hugely encouraging tips from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, SPIN, NME, Nowness, Apple’s Beats 1 and Hillydilly. With his liquid skill set and distinctive style, both musically and visually, M.I.L.K. have become a trusted collaborator to some of the frontrunners on the rising scene of Scandinavian alt. pop. His collaborations expand beyond the music studio, as he has also been making waves in the world of visual arts – directing music videos and developing audiovisual shows for the likes of Liima (4ad), Reptile Youth, Blondage, Abby Portner and Kwamie Liv.
