Hot Milk Announces New EP “The King and Queen of Gasoline”, Shares New Song “Bad Influence”
- Manchester-based emo pop band Hot Milk, consisting of Han Mee and Jim Shaw, announced their third EP “The King and Queen of Gasoline” would be released on August 5, 2022 via Music For Nations.
From the EP, the duo released the first single called “Bad Influence” along with a music video.
Han Mee said of the song, “We've been told we've been a bad influence since we were kids, so you know what? Maybe we are. But it’s only ’cause we have a thirst for life and go against the traditional.”
Jim Shaw continued, “We were made to feel bad for following the our hearts and our passion, we got ousted by family and by peers for being who we are. We know where we’re going and what we want and it’s to be open, happy and live fast and free.”
The EP comprises 6-track, following the 2021 EP “I JUST WANNA KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I'M DEAD”.
"We wanted to personify this feeling of oppression and give it a face, the bunny cult you'll see visually throughout the record gives us something to rage at,” the dup explained of the EP. “The record has come straight from our veins, written and produced by us in a bedroom in Salford. This has been a labour of love, almost hate and therapy all in one. Through this record we want to create an intentional space where liberation and the ability to be free of expectation can be lived. We are the King and Queen Of Gasoline. The best at nearly ruining it all, fucking up and everything nearly going up in flames.”
