Following on from 2016’s breakout success ‘Vile Child’, and a duo of subsequent EPs, “Milk Teeth” finds lead singer Becky Blomfield and Milk Teeth learning, growing and showing the world what they’ve got to offer. After amassing accomplishments that most bands would dream of, including a mainstage Reading and Leeds performance, Kerrang Magazine covers, BBC Radio 1 Maida Vale sessions and being considered a Sunday Times breaking band, the process of making this record did not come easy. Despite becoming the de facto leader and chief songwriter, Becky had lost confidence in her role and was unsure what to do next. “I’d got to a place where I didn’t think my opinion was valid,” says Becky. “But then I decided I needed to write about the things that had been so difficult during that period, personally and professionally, in order to take the band forward and make our definitive musical statement. Making this record self-titled is definitely a statement. It’s a statement of intent in terms of who we are and what we’re capable of.” The renewed, revigorated and white-knuckling sonic direction alludes to Becky and the band’s newfound sense of ownership and authority, as they collide the frenetic aural template of DIY punk-rock, against the undeniably catchy melodies of peak-era grunge. Alongside a strong sonic sensibility, Milk Teeth are acutely aware of and concerned with current societal issues, and endeavour to make a real impact with their message of social justice for all. The band continue to work with a number of groups and causes, including raising money for Solidarity Not Silence, helping women defend themselves against a claim of defamation made against them by a well-known musician, and Beat, the UK’s leading charity supporting those affected by eating disorders. What’s more, the band has trialled self-care sessions for fans during their last UK tour, attempting to provoke positive change by providing fans dedicated time to come and speak to one another, be creative, or have some quiet time.
