Dublin-based alternative pop band, milk. have released their new single, “Human Contact” today. Written in the midst of Covid, the song is about longing for the closeness of other people. Listen to the track now below.
The band’s Mark McKenna said of the song, “Human Contact is definitely our ‘Covid song’. It was written during lockdown in Ireland when we genuinely couldn’t see anyone; even each other. The song is about a longing for companionship and the feeling that you’re alive but not living. Going through the same day on loop and the only comfort being the rest of the world is in the same situation you just wish you could do it in a room together.”
milk. recently come off a sold-out UK and Ireland headline run in 2022 and supporting Orla Gartland for select dates. With more tour dates coming soon and a new project arriving in 2023, this certainly won’t be the last time you hear from milk. in the coming months.
