Before we welcome them on Aussie soil when they open for the Foo Fighters this December, Manchester alternative/emo outfit Hot Milk are preparing us to sing along as loud as we f*cking can. They’ve dropped another banger of a single called ‘Bad Influence’ to assist Aussie fans into top singing form for their debut voyage to our shores later in the year.
The tune serves as an anthem for the misfits and was produced by ever talented co-vocalist Jim Shaw. His and Han’s vocals here further shape the insane dynamic the pair have evolved into and dialed up a notch on their last release, I JUST WANNA KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I’M DEAD. ‘Bad Influence’ sits towards their rockier/heavy-tinged aspects with an all-too edgy pop sense that controls the song’s direction.
As Hot Milk continue their path as music’s newest antichrist, then ‘Bad Influence’ does its job to become the ridiculously cool track to combat our inner delinquent. The song is the leading single from the band’s forthcoming new EP, The King & Queen of Gasoline. You can expect to hear more infectious yet rowdy tunes from Jim and Han on August 5th, thanks to Music For Nations/Sony Music.
