Reliably informed

Spilt Milk’s The Thrill bursts out of your speakers like its namesake, dyed into a sugary rainbow by its happy, twinkling guitar and made rather charming by its slightly lo-fi quality, which adds to the excitable, hopeful feel.

It’s a very pretty piece in places, and makes a star out of lead singer Oscar, whose vocals are powerful when he wants them to be and fluttery as blossom at other times. Though it might not be completely sure of what it wants to be yet, it shines with moments of pure talent: the melody takes these fantastic left turns that give it a cool, whimsical shape and the harmonies are ingenious. This is clearly a band with something different, and The Thrill brims over with promise.
