Oscar Oelrich Reminiscent of a more introspective Psychocandy, with reverb you can (and want to) drown in. Highly recommended. Favorite track: Sushi Dreams (Flesh & Blood).

Kinkyblenderr Indescribable passion in every word sung over haunting melodies and crashing percussion. Favorite track: Muscles.

about

The debut album by Pink Milk.

”A dazzling display of alternative rock music”
”Purple is the best album released in many years” – GAFFA (6 out of 6 stars)

”This small band has produced one of the most consistently great post-punk albums of the year.” – The Independent

”‘Purple’ as an album is a heady mix of everything that was right about shoegaze and stoner- rock.” – Hear Me Raw

”Cocteau Twins, The Cure and Joy Division as modern shoegaze. The duo Pink Milk creates a perfect soundscape with echoes, thundering drums and wailing guitars. The framing is as dark as Ingmar Bergman's "Trilogy of Faith", but in a strange way it produces a hopeful salvation in the bleak and gloomy. – Swedish paper Borås Tidning (4 out of 5 stars)

”A devilish congregation of swirling shoegaze guitars, beats that shake the foundation of time, howling, windswept drones, and vocals laced with barbed wire” – The Line Of Best Fit

”Strangely addictive”  – London on the inside

”stunning shoe gaze that has me daydreaming about summers past spent in Cheshire fields, Stockholm and Berlin” – Kerry Flint

”A fluid, loose, almost drunken drawl that you can imagine playing in the background of one of those misty bar scenes in Twin Peaks” – Wonderland

”Too loud, to the point of no return, burrowed beneath the sheer incessant noise is an almighty, fucked-up pop song” – DIY

”A remarkable, striking work” – Clash

”It sounds absolutely incredible!” – Kerrang! Radio

”If this wasn’t recorded in an aircraft hangar then we’ll be amazed. It’s suitably huge and dreamy but underneath the dense fog is a quality song.” – Shortlist

”Pink Milk have created a completely unique and refreshing sound that reminisces long forgotten 80s movies but the band are unlikely to find themselves as easily forgettable any time soon.” – Music News Today

"On the surface, the debut album Purple is dark, gloomy and claustrophobic, but after a couple of listenings, a looming seducing light appears. I have never experienced any kind of Godly presence, but I imagine that the sound of "LA COP" is heard in the back when the image of the savior presents itself at the end of the tunnel.” - HYMN

”This is a perfect soundtrack to the autumn darkness" – The Music Guide in Swedish national radio P3

Track Name: Drömmens Skepp
Vårt hav med hatten i silver
Drömmande går mot land
Ett skepp med blommor kring rodret
Syns stäva
Mot himlens rand

Vindarna vaknar och vänder
Vaknar och vänder sig om
Vågorna skimrar skimrar
Av sång
Vindarna vaknar och vänder
Vaknar och vänder sig om
Vågorna skimrar skimrar
Av sång
Av sång
Av sång

Ett skepp som strålar i drömmen
Speglar vårt livs förlust
Bestrött med skimrande blommor
Det nalkas
En himmelsk kust

Vindarna vaknar och vänder
Vaknar och vänder sig om
Vågorna skimrar skimrar
Av sång
Vindarna vaknar och vänder
Vaknar och vänder sig om
Vågorna skimrar skimrar
Av sång

Track Name: Sans Toi
Jag minns
Ett liv utan dig
Det var
I ett farligt land
I en farlig stad

Mitt blod
Pumpade hårt
För att nå
Det döda hjärtat
Som slutat att slå
Slå
Slå
Slå

Mitt blod
Pumpade hårt
För att nå
Det döda hjärtat
Som slutat att slå
Slå
Slå
Track Name: I Want to Know What Love Is
I got to take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I'm older
Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like the world upon my shoulders
Through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life
There's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
Can't stop now, I've travelled so far
Change this lonely life

Wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
Wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

Gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
Got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life
There's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
Can't stop now, I've travelled so far
Change this lonely life

I want to know what love is
I want you to show me
I want to feel what love is
I know you can show me
Let's talk about love
