Since posting their first tracks to YouTube, Milky Chance has racked up billions of streams, headlined massive sold-out concerts worldwide, performed on nearly every late-night show, and played iconic festivals from Coachella and Lollapalooza to Bonnaroo and ACL. But when the COVID-19 pandemic forced the German breakout duo to cancel an entire year’s worth of tour dates, guitarist/singer Clemens Rehbein and bassist/percussionist Phillipp Dausch found themselves right back where they started nearly a decade ago: just two music-loving friends with nothing but time and ambition on their hands.
“It felt like the early days all over again,” says Rehbein. “Without any schedules or deadlines, we were back to making music for ourselves, free to experiment and take risks and have fun with it.”
A boundless sense of possibility fuels the duo’s addictive new single (and first fully independent release), “Colorado.” Written and recorded in Berlin, the track finds the band breaking new sonic ground, mixing punk rock grit with electro-pop shine as they transform the pain of heartbreak into something utterly transcendent.
“If there’s a silver lining to the past year,” says Dausch, “it’s been the chance to take our sound to places we might never otherwise have gone. Having a break like this offered us the space to grow as artists.”
Milky Chance may have come a long way over the past decade, but these days, they’re happy to be right back where they started.
