BurySOUND finalists Milque say performing at the Apex in Bury St Edmunds was a great experience.
The band, made up of Alicia Mills and Sam Harrison from Bury St Edmunds, both 18, delighted the BurySOUND crowd in March with their beautiful electronic soundscapes and melancholic vocals.
Alicia, who is studying music technology at college, says Milque was originally a solo project but Sam, her boyfriend, got on board and their sound developed from there. “We work very well together, she said.
“We prefer creating soundscapes rather than generic indie music.
“We do like to go off at a tangent.”
The band use recorded loops and samples on stage during their live show - something that can be nerve-wracking at times.
“We have got so much technology it can mess up live so we have to be aware of that.
“It worked at the Apex though. BurySOUND was great, we really enjoyed it. “Hopefully we will get to play somewhere like that again in the future.”
Alicia said the band intend to put their BurySOUND finalist’s prize, a recording session at the Shrubbery Recording Studio in Bury St Edmunds, to good use.
“We have lots to record and release”, she said.
“I am currently working on something before that too, mixing and mastering it myself.”
The band have lots of upcoming gigs including a spot at Thriplow Daffodil Festival on April 16, a gig at Bury’s Hunter Club on April 21 and are part of the Bury Fringe Festival All-Dayer on May 7.
