Fight Milk-1-25

Formed back in 2015 from two friends becoming simultaneously, “romantically redundant”Fightmilk have gone on to become among the DIY-scene’s most loved bands. Their nostalgic take on the alternative angst of the 1990’s, was previously shared in the shape of two well received EP’s, however they didn’t really prepare any of us for just how good their debut album would be. The album, Not With That Attitude, was written not in the full-blown malaise of relationship breakdown, but with the hindsight that only time to process can produce; a record about reflecting on your past, sometimes with sadness, and often with a wry smile at why you were ever that bothered by it in the first place.


Musically, Not With That Attitude walks a line between the seriousness of classic jangling indie and the more playful end of pop-punk, it is a record that can do seriously sad, then throw in a riff so bombastically joyful that Fall Out Boy might consider it a little too much. The many musical faces of Fightmilk were given a cohesive flow by the record’s one constant, Lily Rae’s vocal; whether channelling Blondie fronting Bloc Party on Dream Phone or perfecting a British take on Diet Cig on Summer Crush, Lily was the perfect counter point to the band’s varied musical sketches. Possibly the most tantalising sketch on the record was penultimate track, Solving Crimes In Sweden, an anthemic, arena worthy pop-song, its rich production adding piano and even swells of brass to a track that feels like a band finding their feet, and showing no fear of experimenting or taking their audience with them on this intriguing journey. With that attitude, Fightmilk’s music could take them anywhere their imagination will let them.
