Music Montag: Milwalkie

by James Glazebrook

Here at überlin, we love a good Scottish accent. It’s just one of the reasons that our all-time favourite rock bands include Idlewild, Biffy Clyro and now, Milwalkie. Lazy (and regionally insensitive) comparisons aside, Aberdonian brothers Matthew David Morris and Steve Morris – and token German Jan Pfennig – distinguish themselves with a taste for epic atmospherics and shimmering, slightly-shoegaze melodies.

We’re stoked that Milwalkie gave us the exclusive to new video “Land” (above), which features singer Matt walking Verve-style through the streets of Berlin, encountering the people and places who’ve made the band feel at home here. They were also good enough to record this interview, which explains how the brothers arrived in Berlin, what they think of the indie scene here, and some tips for places to explore and, more importantly, get coffee! Enjoy this video Berlin Portrait, check out Milwalkie on Facebook and buy “Land” on iTunes.
