After posting their first single “Summer Nights,” I recently received a second email from indie electro pop act, 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 was 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.  And 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. 

The trio’s latest single “Skyline” continues the group’s slickly produced electro pop sound as you’ll hear layers of synths, skittering drums and cymbals, murky synths, industrial clink and clang and soulful vocals but where “Summer Nights” was more of a danceable club tune, “Skyline” is the soulful pop ballad that naturally should come up after you’ve picked up that pretty young thang at the club and you’re trying to seduce him/her.
