* MILO GREENE HIT THE SUMMER FESTIVAL CIRCUIT *
* BUT VERY GENTLY, LIKE... *

West Coast softpop dreamers MILO GREENE are returning to the UK in July for a fistful of festival appearances, including T In The Park, Truck and Latitude. The supernaturally melodic fivesome make their third trip of 2013 to these shores after a hectic springtime jaunt which included a tour with Cold War Kids, a saunter to the seaside for The Great Escape and their largest London headline show so far at The Scala on May 15th. Their summertime special looks like this:

JULY 12TH SCOTLAND T IN THE PARK
JULY 15TH LONDON SOMERSET HOUSE (w/ First Aid Kit)
JULY 19TH OXFORD TRUCK FESTIVAL
JULY 20TH SUFFOLK LATITUDE FESTIVAL
JULY 21ST DUBLIN LONGITUDE FESTIVAL

MILO GREENE still consist of Robbie Arnett, Graham Fink, Andrew Heringer, Marlana Sheetz and Curtis Marrero. Curtis we know is the drummer on the drums. The other four-fifths of Milo Greene meanwhile ebb and flow around the stage playing guitars, percussion, keyboard, bass...basically whatever takes their fancy as each song unfurls. It sounds like some ghastly communal hoedown but in fact their terrific and terrifically atmospheric live shows capture a band locked in some (ch)eerily efficient gear-swapping trance.

The July dates represent the latest stagepost on the promotional campaign highway for MILO GREENE's 'Milo Greene' album which was released earlier this year. January saw their debut UK shows take place in St Pancras Old Church in support of the '1957' single, while the trip in May was worthy endorsement of the 'What's The Matter' EP release. Interestingly, their show at the Great Escape took place in St Bartholomew's Church, which means they have played three gigs on sacred British ground in the space of five months.

It makes sense, too: fivestrong they may be, but MILO GREENE represent the respectful side of rock'n'roll, theirs being a gentle kind of magic with its crushed harmonies and hushed melodies. They also have one of the healthiest riders weve ever seen in a dressing room fridge. As ever, while they might seem like classic troubadours of the West Coast rock dream on first half-listen, theres a dizzying edge to their creativity, a palpable sense that they are playing with your emotions. Throw in the macabre 'Moddison' full length film they made to accompany their album and you'll suspect that these people have seen the deep, dark shadows beneath that dreamy Californian sunset...
