I’m very proud of the fact that over the past 12 to 18 months or so that I’ve been receiving an increasing number of emails from bands, publicity firms, band managers, labels and the like from across the world; if anything, it suggests – to me, at least – that presenting eclectic music, regardless of genre or country of origin has been the right thing. 

I recently got an email about an unsigned band by the name of Milo Bloom, which is comprised of vocalist Greg Fletcher, multi-instrumentalist Billy Kim and drummer Jon Bradley, both of whom are members of the Steelwells. “Summer Nights,” the trio’s first single is a slickly produced electro pop track consisting of layers of synth, soulful vocals, industrial clink and clang and swirling electronics – sonically the song is both club-friendly and radio-friendly. 

Lyrically, the song focuses on the exploits of a summer weekend – heading out to a club on a Friday night, after a long work week full of bullshit and stress, and coming across a beautiful young woman or man and wanting to take them home with the realization that it may be for the weekend or just the summer.
