M1LDL1FE's first single, 'Distraction', may not have been entirely convincing of their new identity as a band, but 'How You Forget' demonstrates the band's first big step outside their comfort zone.
The indie rock outfit just released ‘How You Forget’ this morning, injecting a much-needed dose of wistfulness into their pop-centric songwriting.
“The idea of the song came about when I found myself not being able to remember some (of) my moments with an ex-lover,” explained frontman Paddy Ong in the press release. “It was as if those moments never existed.”
The mid-tempo tune blossoms with unravelling guitars, treated with the kind of reverb that reinforces the sheer despondency of the lyrics. Listen to this one with headphones — from the sparkling synths that drift in the background, to the vocal harmonies that support Paddy, there's plenty to pick out in this concise four-minute track.
M1LDL1FE launches their EP on August 5th. Tickets here.
