SoCal-based quartet The Millennial Club (TMC) releases ‘summer nights’, the band’s highly anticipated 6-track EP.
A recurring theme that appears in The Millennial Club’s music tends to revolve around the real-life notion of being honest, confessing your true feelings, and wearing your heart on your sleeve.
‘summer nights’ is both a reflective and dreamy romantic soundtrack that tells a series of stories about feeling overwhelming passion for a love interest and, naturally, facing the challenges that come with any relationship at all stages.
The infectious melodies and carefully crafted lyricism throughout are reflective of their journey in defining their sound as a blossoming band, their newfound perspectives on relationships, and their maturing process as human beings.
“Writing ‘summer nights’ felt cathartic in a lot of ways; the record as a whole feels like a release of emotions and tension within ourselves. I think for the longest time, I was obsessed with fitting into a self-described box and wanted so badly to ‘be like’ my musical inspirations, but with this record — perhaps unlike our previous releases — we really weren’t trying to be anything other than ourselves.”
“We created every track with the intention of listening to ourselves, something that is unique unto itself even within the work itself; we may have missed that the first time around. Every tune is written from personal experience, with every arrangement meticulously sorted through again and again to no avail, and every sax and vocal take done and redone (and redone again) to make sure we got it right.”
