Some of you may recognise Rye Milligan as the guitarist for London indie-pop band Luna Bay, but what you may not realise is that the Welsh-born talent is also a producer and songwriter in his own right.
We see some of those closely kept skills put to good use in the video for Milligan’s brand new single ‘Silhouette’, in which we see live looping, guitar playing and singing come together.
Speaking about the single, Rye Milligan shares:
“I’ve been tweaking this song’s production on and off for near three years. The actual song fell out in an evening, but the mix, I’ve been working on that for a while. One night when revisiting it, my housemate Alex Ross, the drummer for Luna Bay (the band I’m guitarist for) heard it and liked it. Seeing him excited about my solo music kind of gave me the confidence to get back into it and properly finish the track off. Thanks Alex and also thanks to all the people that have shown support for my music. The feeling’s magic.”
The single is also dedicated to Rye’s late friend Will Acres, for whom the musician leaves this touching remark:
“Will Acres made the foley for the music video. He was always so supportive of my tunes, so I just wanted to release this song on his birthday as thanks. With love from ryebena xo”
