Hot Milk have released a new single and video for the song ‘Bloodstream’ taken from the Manchester-based alternative band’s forthcoming debut album, ‘A Call To The Void’, due for release on 25 August this year via Music For Nations.
Lead singer Han Mee explains the song came to them, instead of being chased down through long hours in a studio :
“The song was written in its entirety in the haunted early hours in Los Angeles. We started it in the early hours just as it was home time… immediately we knew that this song was something different for us yet had come from nowhere. One of them rare moments where the song jumped from the ether and wanted, nay needed to be written.
That feeling of necessity, a song almost undeniable and inescapable, mirrors the feelings of unhealthy adoration, themes of chasing short-term thrills and how those situations can lead to self-loathing, and as Han puts it “unhealthy adoration comes in many forms, the short term thrill for the post-high collapse can create an abusive relationship. You think it’s love, you think you’re in control, you think you can say no if you needed to but you’re not the one in the driving seat anymore.”
