The Milk’s Gone Bad is The Reck’s first new release since their 2018 debut album The Beast From The Sea.
The Milk’s Gone Bad was influenced subconsciously by the surroundings of which it was created. Written by Guitarist/singer Richey Powers whilst sat in his kitchen playing guitar, watching a charm of finches bicker over food on the bird feeder, drinking black coffee because the milk in the fridge had gone off.
About THE RECKS The Recks are a multi-genre, psychedelic, alt-indie five-piece from the Isle of Sark in the Channel Islands, whose unique songwriting style and frenetic live performances at festivals such as Board Masters, Isle of Wight Festival and Boomtown Fair quickly earned them a dedicated fan base across the U.K. and many positive reviews.
Their genre-bending repertoire includes gypsy jazz, folk, reggae, indie, hip-hop and rock and after releasing their debut album, ‘The Beast From The Sea’ in June 2018, they have been riding a wave of success, culminating in an appearance on the BBC Introducing Stage at Latitude Festival; a raucous performance that earned them airtime on The Late Junction on BBC Radio 3, Bethan Elfyn on Radio Cymru and Huw Stephens show on BBC World Service. The Recks returned to the BBC a few months later to perform a rare acoustic show at BBC Music Introducing Live 2018 for Sentric Music Publishing.
As well as performing many local shows and festivals in the Channel Islands, 2019 saw The Recks embark on a successful ten show tour in the South of England, support alt-indie rock band ‘King Nun’ in their native Guernsey, play to a packed out Big Top Stage at Beautiful Days Festival and perform three unique shows in Sweden at the INES Showcase, ‘Live at Heart’ to full houses and rave reviews.
The end of 2019 was successfully rounded off by recording three live tracks for BBC Music Introducing at Maida Vale Studios and were broadcast on various BBC radio stations. New single ‘Porcupine’ was released on 1st November 2019.
