West Coast electro-pop quartet Milo Greene (the band, not the fictional agent) is back on the road, and this time they’re promoting their sophomore album, Control, out this January on Atlantic Records. They’ll be supporting Bombay Bicycle Club at Terminal 5, this Wednesday October 22nd as part of the official CMJ lineup. I chatted with band member Graham Fink about tour life, their exciting new sound and why there’s nothing better on the road than hardcore super fans.
MV: I know that you guys just started your tour and that you’re playing a lot of tracks from the new album. Are you feeling really awesome?
GF: Yeah, it’s been really great so far. The first show or two were a little nervewracking just because we’ve never played any of these songs before, and we’re playing seven songs from the new album in our set list, so there’s a lot of new material to push through. But I think we’ve kind of found our stride and it feels really good. The crowds seem to be receptive. If our merch numbers are any indicator, I would say that people really like it. We’ve had to reorder merch two or three times already and it’s the first week of tour. It’s fun to get out there and play new stuff. It’s a nice combination of making new fans from the people who are coming out to see Bombay Bicycle Club, and then our existing fans coming out to see the change and the progress.
