LIVE: MiLLS – Rock City Basement, Nottingham 21/05/09
From the moment MiLLS start playing, it’s clear to see how passionate they are about their music. So what if the room is half empty, these guys are here to have a good time, and their efforts are rewarded when halfway through the set, the room gradually fills up with an intrigued and captivated audience.
The band storm their way through a short set, squeezing in as many tracks as possible. Opening with the awesome, high-powered ‘Exhaust’ really kickstarts their set as each song just flows into the next with ease. You’d find it hard to believe that as a band they only have as little as 12 gigs under their belt thus far. They throw out an impressive cover of ‘I Remember’ originally by Deadmau5 and an equally rocking cover of Sting’s ‘Faith’ and still find time to squeeze in a bit of promotion for their upcoming single ‘Hello Mellow’, an incredibly catchy track with a sound reminiscient of the Foo Fighters.
I would definitely recommend checking MiLLS out as a live performance and look forward to hearing their debut album offering later in the year.
‘Hello Mellow’ released July 20th via iTunes and 7Digital – www.myspace.com/millsrocks
