‘Stolen Dance’

Out Friday 27 June!

Electronic duo Milky Chance will release what is already a YouTube sensation (30 million+ views) ‘Stolen Dance’, on 27th June through Ignition Records. The duo hail fromKassel, Germany and their song writing began while still in high school.

Last summer Milky Chance released their self-produced debut album ‘Sadnecessary’ on their own label fuelled by sheer enthusiasm and youthful optimism. Within a few weeks, lead single ‘Stolen Dance’ had reached number one on Hype Machine and went on to achieve the number one spot in the iTunes charts in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and Belgium.

In the UK, Milky Chance have only released one single, ‘Down by the River’, which enjoyed strong support at BBC Radio One from DJ’s including Zane Lowe and Fearne Cotton, whilst reaching number 9 in the Shazam worldwide chart.

‘Stolen Dance’ mixes acoustic guitar and stripped back beats, turning the traditional love ballad on its head. Accompanying the single is the effortlessly cool, performance-led video that already boasts over 30 million views and shows no signs of stopping. The single is currently #5 on the European Airplay Chart.

Using only their own Facebook pages and their nascent label’s infrastructure for promotion, the band have recently sold out a run of 50 European dates, driving themselves across the continent with a set of decks and a couple of guitars.

Sadnecessary’, the debut album from Milky Chance will be released in the Ireland this summer.

Milky Chance play Latitude Festival, Southwold, Suffolk on the 20th July.
