Contender: Vinyl LP


Release date: 2 July, 2021

With striking immediacy and anthemic power-pop riffs indie-rock four-piece Fightmilk return with their second album Contender in May 2021. Marking a maturing of their sound, the singles already drawn from it (2020 digital releases I’m Starting To Think You Don’t Even Want To Go To Space and If You Had A Sister) have garnered comparisons to Remote Part-era Idlewild, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, Diet Cig, and Wolf Alice from publications including Secret Meeting, Louder Than War and For The Rabbits along with 6Music and Radio X (John Kennedy). With two more singles due from its ranks ahead of release, Contender shows a band adept at blending wry humour and big emotions with alt-rock riffs and harmonies that is ready to take their music to the next level, growing their audience further. Vinyl: 12” eco vinyl (lucky dip colour) in full colour printed card sleeve, colour printed inner sleeve, shrinkwrapped, barcoded. Press and radio coverage for Fightmilk “Melodic knife-edge pop” - Steve Lamacq “Godzilla-heft hooks” - Drowned in Sound “Utterly lifeaffirming and completely addictive” - Get In Her Ears “Not With That Attitude is the sound of smart young people smacking face first into life’s gravel road.” – Echoes and Dust “one of the finest examples of mixed emotions you’ll hear put to record, as a combination of sadness, joy, resentment and lust collide into a melting pot of pure honesty.” - For The Rabbits Further coverage and airplay from Radio X (John Kennedy), Amazing Radio (Charlie Ashcroft), Louder Than War magazine, Secret Meeting, Loud Women (Her’cury Music Award runners up 2018), Popoptica, The Student Playlist.
