First, Watch the Video!
Keeping their rough and intuitive approach to song-writing, Milgrom’s new ep is cleaner, sharper and shinier!
Making Salad is like a tiny health-food buffet containing 7 polished little snacks, ready for immediate consumption.
Bouncing from rock to non-sense to ballad, Milgrom never loses contact with their experimental-pop souls. With Dolly’s unique voice as the song’s anchor, the drums, guitars and keyboards don’t stay shy and take turns to express their own quirkiness.
The lyrics stretch across the broad spectrum between childish fantasy and harsh human reality. They describe daily life scenarios as well as apocalyptic ones, sprinkled with a fair amount of love stories. The band’s straightforward deliverance of the tunes and lyrics continuously fails to take itself too seriously, and provides a couple of feel-good moments (Guilt free, Co2 neutral).
Tom’s classical perfectionism against Dolly’s irrationality versus Blank’s all-over-the-place straightforwardness was a recipe for a disaster when the band initially started playing together.
Driven by their often unreasonable behaviors, their styles went through a series of clashes so hard that it was a matter of time before the whole thing will shred into pieces.
The only thing they could then do, is glue everything together, not knowing anymore who’s style is what, building that mutant Frankenstein sound which has become the Milgrom trade mark ever since.
