Weird Milk - We Were Strangers

Weird Milk - We Were Strangers
If there was one single word to accurately sum up ‘We Were Strangers’, it’s ‘classic’. On this EP, the Buckinghamshire newcomers tap into a similar kind of songwriting timelessness as relative behemoths The Magic Gang or Matt Maltese, which is to say it’s meticulously-crafted indie-pop that’s as enamoured by melody as it is nostalgic for a time that quite possibly hasn’t even happened yet. The self-titled opener makes like a ‘70s TV theme, while single ‘Vienna’ is akin to a chirpy Alex Turner (if such a thing could exist). ‘See You Around’ hints at the more jangly side of the early ‘90s, meanwhile, whereas ‘Make It Alone (Lonely Boy)’ possesses a surprisingly sharp funk strut. A short collection that’s retro-leaning, no doubt, but with enough pep with it to avoid veering towards regressive territory.
