Los Angeles-based quintet Milo Greene will make its national television debut on "Late Show with David Letterman" on July 26. The band will perform "1957," the lead single from its self-titled debut album, which is scheduled for release on July 17 by Chop Shop/Atlantic Records.
Milo Greene just premiered "Take A Step," another track from their upcoming album, at PigeonsandPlanes.com, which noted: "With a sound reminiscent of Local Natives and a musclier version of the Fleet Foxes, 'Take A Step' dives into a driving, melancholy groove that's perfect for the sort of rainy summer days we've been having in New York or a nice sunset at the beach-your call."
Milo Greene, which supported The Civil Wars on their 2011 U.S. tour, will play a sold out show at the legendary Troubadour in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 23, and at New York City's Mercury Lounge on July 26. The band's summer tour will also include a stop in Chicago, where they will perform at Schuba's with The War on Drugs (8/3) and at Lollapalooza (8/ 4). See below for itinerary.
"LA quintet Milo Greene floored the audience with their soaring melodies and unbridled enthusiasm," said ConsequenceofSound.net in a live review. "Warming hearts with lines such as 'I'll go, I'll go wherever you go,' and the vibrant chemistry between the multipart vocals, picking a definitive highlight of the brief yet impressive set was immensely difficult. The extended, rocking version of '1957' for the closer would be a definite candidate, though, as it left the crowd begging for another song and the set lists on paper plates."
NPR Music singled out Milo Greene as one of the most promising new bands, PasteMagazine.com praised their "beautiful harmonies" and Time Out New York said: "[their] giddy pop songs recall Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros."
Milo Greene is: Robbie Arnett, Graham Fink, Andrew Heringer, Curtis Marrero and Marlana Sheetz. The quintet co-produced its debut album with Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, RaRaRiot, The Gossip) at Bear Creek Studio, a converted turn-of-the-century barn outside Seattle.
