Milly Los Angeles rock group is back with more of their signature shoegaze-tinged alt rock soundscapes. “Birds Fly Free” is the second single from their upcoming “Wish Goes On” EP, which is coming later this year. It follows “Denial”, their single from February of this year. ‘Milly produce a slow-grooving track filled with resounding progressions in “Birds Fly Free.” Boasting ’90s vibes, the track’s accompanying music video sees singer Brendan Dyer go about his day. From the vocalist being chased by a dog to almost getting killed by an action figure that’s come to life, the cinematic imagery complements the track’s builds and drops seamlessly. “Birds Fly Free” will be featured on their upcoming EP, Wish Goes On, which drops April 9th via Dangerbird Records.

I was really trying to capture the feeling of being alone and why it was hard for me to digest how that felt. My hometown spots feeling different after leaving, people moving on with their lives,
