Power punks, Hot Milk release their second EP, I Just Wanna Know What Happens When I’m Dead via Music For Nations. It follows the success of the band’s first EP, 2019’s Are You Feeling Alive?, a fizzy collection of gutsy emo-pop which established them as one of the most exciting new bands in the UK. Their 2019 was a whirlwind year that saw them tour with Foo Fighters, Deaf Havana, and You Me At Six, as well as playing some of the UK’s biggest festival stages.
I Just Wanna Know What Happens When I’m Dead which was produced by Jim Shaw, is another vivacious call to arms, rammed with sharp hooks and huge, catchy choruses, to encourage everyone, everywhere, to follow their dreams. But elsewhere, the lyrics are more personal, with the band bottling the anxieties and frustrations of their everyday lives. Woozy openly tackles depression, Good Life takes on societal corruption and the distribution of wealth, while elsewhere the band address the pursuit of happiness in a modern world.
