Diggin’ This: Mildlife – “How Long Does It Take?” (Heavenly Recordings)
Flutes, echoes, it’s all happening!
Melbourne, Australia four-piece Midlife are here to make you boogie.
For their latest release, James Donald, Adam Halliwell, Kevin McDowell, and Tomas Shanahan have crafted a jazz-forward, cosmic disco burner. Beginning with pensive flutes and delicate keys, “How Long Does It Take?” gradually morphs into an optimistic and ever-ascending home-made house rocket complete with bass noodles, arpeggiated synths, and a drum-djembe combo designed to loosen you up as you get down.
Say the band via Bandcamp: “The song is a homage to the dance floors and clubbers who championed our music from day 1. We’ve been delighted to watch heaving crowds burn holes in the dance floor as we close our set with it so now we’re equally delighted to offer it up on record as a late night thumper.”
Track (and thumper) of the day.
