Milly is a rock band from Los Angeles fronted by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Brendan Dyer. Their sound melds together elements of classic shoegaze, slowcore, and lo-fi indie rock, coalescing into an intense, singular musical impression. Milly began as Dyer’s home recording project in his hometown of Bristol, Connecticut before finally taking its current formation as a live band in Los Angeles.
As the title suggests, this EP contains Milly’s first four songs. The first two songs “Milly” and “People Are Forever” were originally self-released by Dyer in 2018 and the following two songs “Talking Secret” and “Crazy Horse” were originally released by Dangerbird as part of the Microdose single series.

Not gonna lie, I've listened to this album more than 100 times in the past 6 months (early 2021). Pretty much have in on repeat all the time. Very rarely do I encounter an production that resonates so well with me. The overdrive tones and studio production are next level. Post-punk vibes are insane. Love the wailing vibrato. Highly recommend. adam_z

Had to wait a bit to get this one but boy oh boy… so good. Harmonics, layers, catchy riffs, feathery angelic vocals. This band is such a wonderful group! Good luck with touring and stay safe! turbineguy

This might be their best album, and that's really saying something. The songs shift seamlessly from crushing to angelic, and there are enough other dynamics and subtleties at play to keep each song interesting. It's my favorite album of 2020, and I don't see that changing any time soon. steverie
