Hot Milk Premieres New Song “BREATHING UNDERWATER” on BBC Radio 1
Manchester-based alt-rock band Hot Milk, consisting of Han Mee (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Jim Shaw (lead vocals/guitar), Tom Paton (bass) and Harry Deller (drums), premiered a new song “BREATHING UNDERWATER” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Jack Saunders.
The song was released as the fourth single from their upcoming debut album “A Call To The Void”, which is due out on August 25, 2023.
The track was written by James Shaw, Hannah Mee, and Zachary Joseph Cervini. Produced by James Shaw and Zakk Cervini.
Han Mee told Jack Saunders about the song, “I think it was one of those rare moments where, what you're actually feeling was properly conveyed through words. Like it's very rare that I actually get, what's in my head out onto paper into songs and it was it was written by accident. Really I was in the studio the day. The first day we started writing this album and I was crying. And we were done three months of touring, I was burnt out and what even more, and I was like what the hell do we write about? and I think I just wrote about the pressure and being a bit of an impostor and just feeling not very like I belonged in all of them. This song was born from it.”
- Han Mee said of the song in a statement, “like when you break your own heart. To feel like you're drowning, gasping for air, frustrated and alone. This song embodies the emotion and spirit of our current headspace, and we feel it may be the most important song we've ever pulled from the universe. This is Hot Milk's true heart. Hot Milk is an emotion.”
She continued, “We needed to write this song as a cry to the outside world. Breathing Underwater is the beating heart and defining song off our debut album. It was written first and set off a chain reaction that moulded the feeling of 'A Call To The Void'.”
The debut album comprises 11, track, featuring guest appearances from Julian Comeau and Loveless.
