MILO CLARE SHARES SECOND SINGLE “TEXAS”, CONFIRMS THE GREAT ESCAPE + DEBUT LONDON HEADLINE SHOW
March 4, 2022
Milo Clare’s debut single ‘Electric Connect’ immediately established the young north Londoner as one to watch for 2022. Greeted by an exclusive play on Lauren Laverne’s 6 Music show and subsequent support from BBC Radio 1 the track also resulted in new artist features from tastemakers DIY and Wonderland, as well as a place on NME’s Best New Tracks playlist.
Building on that initial attention, Milo Clare goes from strength-to-strength as he today releases his second single ‘Texas’. Both songs will feature on his upcoming debut EP.
‘Texas’ is a perfect snapshot of Milo Clare’s ability to wield disparate genres with his own beguiling sense of style. Powered by a magnetic vocal that adds a suave swagger to his sensual R&B grooves, the song also pulsates with a gritty, off-kilter psych-rock edge. His lyrics playfully reflect his experiences of love and lust in the Lone Star State.
Milo Clare says, “This track is a tip of the hat to that South Central spirit – a tongue-in-cheek ode to a series of perfectly messy Texan romances. It’s a playful soundtrack for your drive from state to state of mind.”
‘Texas’ is released alongside a live performance video. It showcases Milo Clare’s innate sense of style as he fronts his four-piece band, once again showing that his music takes on an energising majesty within the live arena after a phenomenal reaction to the ‘Electric Connect’ live video. It also provides a taste of what to expect as he prepares to play his first live show at the DIY Alive weekender on April 23rd/24th, followed by his debut London headline at The Social on May 5th and WME’s showcase at The Great Escape Festival Thurs, May 12th
Milo Clare has been steeped within the world of music from a young age. His mother would surround him in the eclectic sounds of The Roots,Erykah Badu, The Cure and The Clash, while his father figure, the producer Howie B (Björk, Massive Attack), opened his ears to wider sonic possibilities and immersed him in studio life.
He developed his own skills as a bedroom producer, making waves with two introductory tracks before honing his identity ahead of the release of ‘Electric Connect’. He is part of a growing collective of young creatives in the King’s Cross area, as musicians, actors and writers share their talents in a flourishing artistic community.
