Milky Chance on Indie Accent

Milky Chance

c. 2012 | ORIGIN: KASSEL, GERMANY

Milky Chance is a German folk group originating from Kassel. It currently consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Clemens Rehbein, DJ and producer Philipp Dausch, and guitarist Antonio Greger. Their first single "Stolen Dance" was released in April 2013, peaking at No. 1 on charts in multiple countries including Austria, France, Belgium (Wallonia), Switzerland, Poland, Czech Republic and Hungary. It also won the 1Live Krone radio awards for Best Single.
The duo's debut album Sadnecessary was released in October 2013, with singles such as "Down by the River". The album peaked at number 14 in Germany, and in 2014 SPIN named Sadnecessary their Album of the Week. SPIN further described the leading single "Stolen Dance" as a "serenely rollicking crossover jam," clarifying that "the great majority of Sadnecessary follows [the song's] pattern of low-octane beats and gently lapping guitar strumming.
The band uses a relatively simple equipment setup both live and in the studio, and their debut releases were recorded in 2013 with only a MacBook Pro, a guitar, a microphone, and Logic Pro. Rehbein will often write a song on guitar without lyrics, with Dausch then producing the track. The group also periodically performs and records acoustically, bringing in guest instrumentalists.
