Los Angeles self-described cinematic pop band Milo Greene returns with their sophomore effort, 'Contol!'
'Control' was recorded earlier this year with producer Jesse Shatkin (Sia, Foster The People, Ellie Goulding) at his Highland Park, California home studio. The band also enlisted the help of legendary drummer Joey Waronker (Beck, Atoms For Peace, R.E.M.), who shaped much of the album's complex rhythmic backdrop while also contributing drums to a number of tracks.
Compared to the likes of 'Mumford and Sons', 'Of Monsters and Men' and 'The Head And The Heart', their second album combines the haunting, cinematic expanse of their debut with new, energized elements, urging a more upbeat tone overall. Milo Greene has become something else entirely.
Milo Greene – that is, Andrew Heringer, Robbie Arnett, Marlana Sheetz, and Graham Fink – began making music in 2009. As the group made their cinematic debut album, released in 2012, Milo Greene, a fictional character the band had created, shifted into a fully tangible being, a force created by four distinct songwriters and musicians whose collaboration consistently remains its core. The Los Angeles-based group quickly earned national acclaim, with NPR Music singling them out as one of 2011's most promising new acts and Esquire placing them on its list of "2012's Artists to Watch."
That promise was fulfilled on 2012's Chop Shop/The Atlantic debut album, 'MILO GREENE.' Highlighted by singles like "1957" and "What's The Matter," the collection proved a critical and popular sensation, entering Billboard's "Heatseekers Albums" chart at #1 while receiving ecstatic praise from major publications nationwide for their idiosyncratic hooks, infectious male/female harmonies, and inventive indie-pop approach.
