Flashed Junk Mind is the new single from Milky Chance, out 16th February on Ignition Records. The third single to be taken from the German duo's hit debut album Sadnecessary, Flashed Junk Mind follows the Radio 1 A-listed singles Stolen Dance and Down By The River. Milky Chance weave together elegant electronic production with acoustic guitars and lilting, lush vocals, into a style unequivocally their own. It's uniquely modern pop that has resonated with a truly international audience; Stolen Dance has had over 70 million YouTube views and has been a No.1 hit across the world, including the USA where it topped the Alternative Chart for 10 weeks.
Milky Chance's incredible worldwide success could only have happened in the current musical climate where country borders are as irrelevant as musical categorisation. That a pair of teenage friends - Clemens (vocals and guitar) and Philipp (DJ) - fresh out of college and from a tiny German town, can make an album in their self-built home studio and release it on their own label with minimal expectations, yet within 18 months see their album released by labels in all territories, have a global smash hit single, perform on legendary US TV chat shows, be nominated for multiple awards and sell out gigs all over the world is a very modern musical fable.
Last January Milky Chance played their first UK show to a half-full Barfly in London. Next month they will return to play two nights at Shepherd's Bush Empire, which are close to selling out, as is their entire UK tour. The band will then head to the US where tickets for their 30-date Spring tour sold out within minutes of going on sale.
