With their new EP ‘We Were Strangers’ landing this autumn, Weird Milk are giving us the first taste of what to expect with shimmering new track ‘Vienna’.
“‘Vienna’ is a very personal release to me,” the band’s Alex Griffiths explains. “It was written at a moment in my life where I reached a crossroads and was totally stuck. A few amazing individuals, whom I likened to ‘angels’, swooped into my life to guide me in my time of need. They left their impressions on me, I chose my path and then they each flew away. I’m grateful to this day and though I am not spiritual or religious, it reshaped my perception of fate. I worked on it with Charlie over lockdown and we finished the arrangement and music together, drawing inspiration from Wings, The Band and Phoebe Bridgers.”

A short collection that’s retro-leaning, no doubt, but with enough pep with it to avoid veering towards regressive territory.
Lifted from their forthcoming EP, ‘We Were Strangers’.
The four-piece share their new baroque-pop bop.
