Milton Star are Alan Wyllie and Graeme Currie who write and record their unique blend of indie and dark country in a converted church ‘Milton’ located in darkest Fife.
And that really helps craft this double A side which excellently tells two tales full of despair, regret and sorrow through well crafted lyrics. The style of the songs suits the stories really well, Milton Star capture the essence of classic old country whilst having a modern indie edge to their sound. The vocals are deep toned and there’s great guitar playing backed by solid bass and drumming.
Sorryville Great opening to the song, has some ambient qualities with great sound effects but the mood then changes when the song is propelled along by really solid drumming. There’s a great edge to the song, it is a tale of despair and woe told by great deep toned vocals. It has quite a lilting feel to the rhythm which creates a great tension and atmosphere, some great guitar tones and playing too.
Salvation Love the opening to this song, great drumming and beautifully toned guitar chord with an excellent twang to the riff. It has a real western lonesome feel to the song, would make a great cinematic soundscape. The song has a great rhythm with excellent guitar playing. The vocals compliment the song really well, deep toned, telling a story full of woe and regret.
