Dama Scout share new track ‘Milky Milk’

It’s about “making the most of fleeting happiness and accepting its irregularity”.

Last year Dama Scout released their ace self-titled EP and now they’re back with their first new slice of material since that collection.

‘Milky Milk’ starts off sparse but soon moves into noisier, sludgier passages of fuzzed-out, grinding guitar riffs that build in intensity, leading to a soaring climax.

In a press release, the band said of the track: “Milky Milk is a song about making the most of fleeting happiness and accepting its irregularity. We move from the intimacy of Eva’s voice into noisy sections whilst keeping the arrangement simple and live with few overdubs. Instead of a vocal chorus we chose to play a straightforward major scale in unison washed in doom and sludge”.

They continued: “We wanted an elastic performance, building tension through the push and pull of dynamics and tempo - culminating in the euphoric end section that hopefully comes as a relief. When we put the song together we’d been listening to a mixture of Dave Okumu, Can, Francois Hardy and Earth”.

Dama Scout are also set to play a few shows in the next couple of months, including a slot supporting Gengahr and a show at Liverpool Sound City.
