German folk duo Milky Chance is set to play the Orpheum this Spring in support of their newly-released album, Mind the Moon.
You might have first heard of Milky Chance when their popular album dropped in 2013. Titled Sadnecessary, its tracks “Down by the River” and “Stolen Dance” reached top spots in numerous European countries.
Band members Philipp Dauschand and Clemens Rehbein’s tour will promote all 12 new songs on Mind the Moon — tracks blending folk, electronic, hip-hop, world music, and chillout vibes.
The duo’s critically acclaimed third album encapsulates the band’s notorious free-flowing and multi-faceted songwriting. According to Earmilk, it exhibits “a deeper exploration of Philipp Dauschand and Clemens Rehbein’s unique instrumental arrangements and effervescent vocals.”
“With Mind the Moon, Milky Chance offers a moon cycle’s worth of sustained twilight-hour grooves,” says AllMusic.
According to KUTX, the new album is “frothing with greatness.”
NPR Music says Milky Chance “embody new twists on the old concept of world music.”
The band will be visiting Vancouver on April 20 before continuing down the West Coast with shows in Seattle, Denver, Phoenix, and Los Angeles.
Milky Chance’s extensive North American tour will headline over twenty cities, kicking off in Dallas on March 23 and heading up to Milwaukee and Minneapolis, before heading to Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Calgary, with Vancouver as its last Canadian stop.
