Deaf Havana – ‘Mildred’ New single out September 16th From the ‘Old Souls’ LP, out Sep 16th
After warming up the crowds at this year’s Bruce Springsteen Hard Rock Calling and following the anthemic ‘Boston Square’, UK six-piece Deaf Havana explode from the speakers with their colossal new single and Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record, ‘Mildred’, out September 16th on BMG Chrysalis.
Written by the band’s Matthew Veck-Gilodi, ‘Mildred’ is the first song where brothers Matt and James share vocal duties. Bristling with energy and life, it drives a thick wedge between the footloose freedoms of youth and the daunting duties of adulthood, bemoaning the latter for an irresistible hit of growing pains rock.
The track was c-produced by James Veck-Gilodi with the unrivalled YOUTH (The Verve, Primal Scream and Crowded House). Matt says: “Mildred is essentially about growing up so closely with someone, imagining that your life will run parallel to theirs and then seeing said person growing up too young, getting a job and assuming responsibilities beyond their years.”
It’s the second single from the band’s eagerly anticipated new album ‘Old Souls’, which is out September 16th on BMG Chrysalis.
Following their sold-out acoustic tour in March, Deaf Havana will crank it up a notch this October for an 8-date UK jaunt, with special guest support from Charlie Simpson + Big Sixes.
