PRAISE FOR ‘MILK IN MY BOWL’
“Nourishing stomp-down from this duo! Bootleg Rascal are on a roll in 2020.”
Dave Ruby Howe – triple j Unearthed (AUS)
“Bootleg Rascal continue their reign with new single, Milk In My Bowl.”
Added to Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday (AU/NZ)’ and ‘Indie Arrivals’ playlists
Bootleg Rascal have just unveiled ‘Milk In My Bowl’ – another taste from their forthcoming staggered EP titled ‘Collaborations of Very Isolated Delinquents “19’ – produced by the band themselves, Ian Pritchett (Boo Seeka, Kim Churchill, Angus and Julia Stone), and Simon Dobson (Little May, STUPID BABY).
‘Milk In My Bowl’ is another shining example of the duo’s ability to push sonic boundaries, while simultaneously delivering on a cohesive sound that is their own. The track consistently maintains its groove-laden pace, before shifting into a slow building bridge that gradually melds the front half of the arrangement with the latter.
Front man Carlos Lara describes the creative process behind the track:
“’Milk In My Bowl’ was another great opportunity for us to experiment with our sound and give something different back to fans. Over the last twelve months, we’ve constantly been pushing the envelope sonically and it’s the most fun we’ve ever had writing and releasing music. The lyrical content matter follows on from ‘We Independent’, where we had removed ourselves from a toxic situation. This account further highlights the realisation that we’re so much better off, and in a way it’s us saying our peace and moving forward”.
After restrictions imposed by the Australian government, the band were forced to reschedule their East Coast capital city shows to mid-late September 2020, while their performance at Big Pineapple Music Festival has been moved to Saturday 21 November.
Since their mid-2013 inception, Bootleg Rascal have released a slew of singles, an EP and two albums, all warmly received by critics and fans around the world, with support from the likes of NME, The Line of Best Fit, Clash Magazine, Pilerats and Wonderland Magazine. Multiple tracks have been added to Spotify and Apple Music playlists, high rotation on triple j and they’ve performed on the station’s esteemed ‘Like a Version’ segment.
The band have continually traversed the globe playing multiple sold out headline shows in France, UK, Holland, Germany, New Zealand and Australia, and performed sold out shows in the USA. They’ve also regularly appeared on major Australian festivals including Falls Festival, The Big Pineapple Festival, Lost Paradise, Hills are Alive, Festival of the Sun and Party in the Paddock.
