Hot Milk - Split Personality

To tease the release of a new five-track EP, I Just Wanna Know What Happens When I’m Dead, which lands on 10th September – ‘Split Personality’ is a throbbing fuzzy track that expands on the Hot Milk vocabulary.

The song, like the video (which may not be suitable for people with photo-sensitive conditions), is urgent. The guitars and bass on this track are a little heavier than usual, flickering metal licks that suggest nudges across the genre boundary. This doesn’t prevent the song being a fizzer that is full of beggertick hooks.

Lyrically, we haven’t been surrounded with this many drug references since Suede – unless I’ve picked up the stick very much the wrong way around… Wittgenstein’s Ruler and all that!

Hot Milk are currently touring (8th – 16th September), so this is a great chance to catch them live.
