Millions to Release New EP and Announce London Dates 

seen-london

London based four-piece, MILLIONS are set to release their new EP ‘EP One’ on Well Suspect Records on the 9th of June 2017.

‘EP One’, recorded with Alex Franklinos at Shrunken Heads studios in Nunhead, is released on limited edition seven-inch vinyl and will be available digitally at all the usual major outlets. A stunning statement of intent, the new EP features four brand new tracks including the lead single ‘Let It Go’ which is accompanied by a great self-directed video.

EP Track Listing:
01. ‘Last Summer’
02. ‘Let It Go’
03. ‘Foolish Love’
04. ‘Baby Boy’

The MILLIONS line up features Dom Haddad (vocals) and Campbell Smith (bass) together with siblings Ted and Louis Tilbrook on guitar and drums respectively, and whose father is Glenn Tilbrook; the founding member and lead singer of legendary new wave band Squeeze.

SEEN was fascinated to hear that the band is influenced and inspired by the likes of early Adam & The Ants, Led Zeppelin and Tyrannosaurus Rex. Millions were originally formed in Brisbane, Australia nearly three years ago. They toured extensively over there, where their melodic twist on garage punk saw them enjoying some success with a couple of low-key releases that attracted the attention of the public and critics alike, and saw them pick up heavy radio play on the triple J station.

They’ve since relocated to London and Well Suspect Records offered the group a record deal after seeing them perform in a pub in Greenwich late last year. One of the most exciting live prospects around right now, MILLIONS will have announced that they will play London shows at the Rocksteady in Dalston on the 10th of March followed by a single launch party at Nambucca on the 7th of June 2017. More UK dates will be announced to coincide with the release of the band’s debut album later this year.

Somewhere Over the Reignbow: LGBT Rights Protected in Queen’s Speech

With all the recent sombre news, coupled with the feeling that communities in cities are experiencing particular oppression, it is indeed heartening to hear the following words in the Queen’s speech: “My government will make further progress to tackle the gender pay gap and discrimination against people on the basis of their race, faith, gender, …

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
