Milk Teddy - "one of Melbourne’s most adored yet equally confounding bands" - play Franks Wild Years on the 24th to celebrate the release of their new record "Time Catches Up with Milk Teddy".
"Having lit spot fires across the Australian indie landscape in 2012 with their debut LP Zingers, Milk Teddy have now coaxed together twelve songs that expand the band's gift for canny hooks and catchy concepts with structural concision. A glorious clamour-fest of wafting guitar leads and stately synths provide rich undergrowth for Thomas Mendelovits’ unmistakably joyous yowl. Milk Teddy's songs push beyond the slippage of irony and sincerity to find a space where camp, ruminative, astute and sincere fly together."
