Boys EP release - ‘New Age Cowgirl’. + special guests Milkie & Pet Insurance live at The Louisiana, Bristol. Saturday, 24th February 2024
This show marks the official release of Boys’ debut EP release; ‘New Age Cow Girl’.
Described as Cowboy Strange Pop, Boys were conceived within the confines of lockdown. The
band began between three Stokey mates exchanging voice notes via WhatsApp. Operating from
London, Lincolnshire and Somerset, Boy’s have made their nest in Bristol. Their sound depicts an
audible definition of what it means to live in the Wild Wild East.
Milkie are a four-piece pop band from Bristol, and also the moniker of Frontwoman and
songwriter, Millie ‘Milkie’ Phipps. Milkie recently left her job as the principal of a music university
to refocus on actually making music herself. A songwriter’s songwriter, Milkie’s songs defy genre,
skipping from folk to rock to eighties inspired pop, yet she creates coherency through her unique
mix of storytelling, humour and a certain je ne sais quoi (which might have something to do with
her ongoing obsession with la chanson Française). It is her mission to make you laugh, cry and
dance at every show. 2024 is set to be a bumper year for Milkie with their next single due in
February and many more to follow.
Bristol based art rock, post-punk four-piece, combining angular guitar lines and dynamic drums
with the charisma of an Essex-born frontman singing about the anxieties and isolation of modern
life, through to his desire to become a TV opera singer. Think safe as milk era Beefheart meets
Robert Smith, wrapped up with contemporary post-punk drive.
Show starts at 7:30pm.
