Best New Bands of 2013 HUMMINGBIRD AWARD #11: Holy Milk

When I say ambient female led London bands you say what? Imogen Heap, Goldfrapp or this year’s yet again darling Bat for Lashes. That’s fine, none of those three bands shifted the universe with their music, but they made a name for themselves. Holy Milk isn’t your typical ambient artist looking to make a name for themselves with that one poppy track that will show up with an oozing iPhone 5C, they’re dark and eerie, potentially haunting my daydreams. I fall in love with voices, but not easily. Lucinda John-Durante is soothing and she’s a siren that could lure me to do very dangerous things. I’m looking forward to a big 2014 from Holy Milk. No one has ever punished us for rewarding potential.
