Today, we’re stoked to be premiering a brand new single from Northeast emo trio Milk St. The band new track, entitled “Peyote,” is the second song to be released off their upcoming EP, Vermont, which is set for release this September.
Speaking on the lyrical themes of the track, vocalist Jonah Wakefield says:
“’Peyote’ is about realizing your parents aren’t always right and that any new perspectives you take on may be influenced by the mental illness passed down hereditarily to you. Ultimately, you’re left feeling horrified that you can’t escape the thing that influences their different opinions and outlooks, to the point where you accidentally seek those traits in the people you date – you’re left stuck in this cycle of having the same sort of people in your life over and over.”
Sonically, “Peyote” is an unconventional mix of indie punk and bluegrass, an unconventional mix. But that’s what makes it so good. Stream the new single below and keep checking back for more from Milk St.!
