The band previously shared “Today Tonight” and Brooklyn Vegan labeled the band “charming” and Austin Town Hall called the track “super impressive” further noting “I’m reveling in the fact that it employs these little guitar stabs that recall early days in the jangle scene; they do move on in a dreamier style, complimented by Elizabeth Mitchell’s sultry delivery.” The UK’s Clash said the band “match off kilter guitars to some striking melodies, and fascinating lyricism.”
Totally Mild will make their way to the U.S. in 2018 for shows at SXSW, with more dates to be confirmed.
Her is the follow up to the band’s 2015 acclaimed deubt Down Time which Pitchforkcalled “a shining talisman for the heartbroken.” Totally Mild started out as the solo project of songwriter Elizabeth Mitchell, and has now become a full blown lush pop quartet. Elizabeth’s voice is a thing of unearthly beauty, capable of soaring and swooping in shiver-inducing ways. As a songwriter she is equally arresting, addressing desires and dreams with affecting frankness. In Totally Mild she is joined by guitar magician Zachary Schneider, drummer Dylan Young and bassist Lehmann Smith. In the last few years the band have developed a quasi-psychic intensity, surging forward or pulling back in seamless unison. This intensity has been captured in crystalline form by producer and one-time Architecture In Helsinki member James Cecil.
After Down Time‘s release, Totally Mild toured UK/Europe in 2015, then hit the US in early 2017, playing SXSW and a string of LA/NYC shows. In Australia they have played Meredith Music Festival and shared stages with the likes of Real Estate, Kurt Vile, Best Coast, DIIV and The Chills.
