‘Milk’, the first release by singer songwriter Jinnwoo his first in five years, carries the abandoned fairground sinisterness of Alice-era Tom Waits and the guttural voice of the Tallest Man on Earth, without truly sounding like either artist, such is its singularity. Jinnwoo, the alias of the Leicester-born artist Ben Webb, is preoccupied with nostalgia and his latest track explores this fascination, as he explains: “I obsess over photographs or old letters, or emails. It’s glorious and unhealthy. This song is about that. About how a part of us wants to sit and dwell, and we feed that part of us with photos or old songs.“

“Glorious and unhealthy” characterises the opposing feelings within ‘Milk’On one hand, there is something strangely comforting about this song, but on the other, a sense of disquiet and foreboding abounds, resulting in a curious, intoxicating listening experience.
