The Leeds-based indie rock evocators Milford Place will render hearts raw with their latest single, Lately

Whoever you revere as the most iconic emotive indie rock acts of all time, everyone can agree that the Leeds, UK-hailing 4-piece Milford Place deserve a spot in the evocative rock hall of fame, especially after ‘Lately’ entered their discography.

After making their presence well-known on the local live scene in 2019 by playing to capacity crowds and always finding a new way to hone their live performances, the outfit is looking to come back with an even bigger bang following pandemic stagnation. After dropping Lately onto the airwaves, Milford Place will easily steal the hearts of indie rock fans who turn to sonic sanctity to quell their heartbreak.

With tinges of Peace, Jaws and M83 to their intricately lamenting sound, which always cuts to the core of emotion for visceral catharsis, we have no doubt that the melodic powerhouse will effortlessly dominate the indie landscape in Leeds and beyond.

Lately will officially release on June 7th; hear it on SoundCloud.

Time To Explore Again: Les Ailes yearns to be free as she finds her own path on ‘Lately’

Born with a guitar practically in her hand due to the family genes, Les Ailes is ready for her time to shine on the new single called ‘Lately‘. that is taken off her dynamic new eight-track ‘Tennessee‘ LP.

Les Ailes is the Seattle-born project of soulfully authentic indie modern-folk singer-songwriter Rylie DeGarmo. She makes that aesthetically pure soundscape that feels so good in your heart, as you wash away all the doubts by turning her up to full.

This is the true tale of how you can feel down by current affairs in this complex world, by putting the world on your shoulders to find deeper meaning. Standing up for what is right means so much for your heart and if you are somehow not doing that even if you could be being too hard on yourself, the urge can be to look too far in, without looking up to the bigger picture.

Her voice is absolutely breathtaking, her stunning delivery is so captivating as she peacefully lets you into her feelings to show you who she really is as a human. A kind soul has just opened up her wings, as you feel that she growing up before our eyes, as her creativity is soaring and you feel her energies are gaining steam for more to come.

Lately‘ from the incredibly gifted US singer-songwriter Les Ailes, is a story that makes you feel so reflective, as you wonder if your efforts in this selfish world are enough to make it better. With a self-aware nature, you feel that this is how she is motivating her mind to explore more once restrictions are lifted – as her soul yearns for more knowledge and experiences worldwide – after being stuck in a numbing box for too long.
