Milo Greene Reveals A New Sound On 'White Lies'

L.A. outfit Milo Greene is getting ready to release Control, and in prep, have dropped the first single off the forthcoming album: "White Lies". The track is more than just a new song, it's a new direction with an entirely new sound. When we hung out with Milo Greene at the Wythe Hotel in 2012 they were tagging their sound as "Americana Dream Pop," classified by an astute and inspired witness.

"White Lies" steps away from Americana in a big way, though the "Dream Pop" genus still fits. At some point in the last two years the quintet stepped off the grassy fields of folk music and into the neon glow of electric nights; think less Passenger and more Wild Belle. It's perhaps a dangerous departure, leaving them wide open for criticisms like, "this just sounds like commercial music," a comment left on youtube by a fan. That same fan touched on something a little closer to the truth: "they are no longer the Milo Greene I once knew," and while this may be true, I'm not so convinced it's bad. The Milo Greene of 2012's Milo Greene established the groups' vocal, technical, and compositional talent beyond the shadow of a doubt; I'm willing to trust that they know what they're doing.

Compare Milo Greene to Milo Greene, listen to "White Lies," and then check our Wythe Hotel session:
