MILWAUKEE BANKS Share new single ‘Lights Down feat. Sophiegrophy’
Collaboration has always been at the core of Milwaukee Banks. Their latest single ‘Lights Down’ is out now via Dot Dash / Remote Control and sees the duo explore new sonic territory, as well as team up with Melbourne based vocalist Sophiegrophy.
‘Lights Down‘ is unlike anything you’ve heard from Milwaukee Banks before. A breezy and bouncy jam that is an ode to late night summer house parties. After meeting Sophie in early 2017, the pair wrote ‘Lights Down‘ with only her soulful vocal in mind. Sophiegrophy is a Nigerian born rapper and singer who moved to Melbourne via New Zealand, and has been causing a major stir in the Australian hip-hop underground ever since. Her vocal shines on ‘Lights Down,’ and perfectly compliments the addictive melody and bumping beat of the song. It’s the brightest and most playful moment in Milwaukee Banks’forthcoming sophomore album, No Time, which is set for release in early 2018 through Dot Dash /Remote Control.
After ending a busy 2016 with nominations for best Hip Hop album in both the Victorian Music Awardsand the Australian Independant AIR awards for their debut Deep Into The Night, the timing is ripe forMilwaukee Banks to deliver their boldest set of collaborative work to date. No Time will be a further exploration into forward-thinking sounds and styles unlike anything Australian rap has heard before.
