German folk band Milky Chance is performing live in Vancouver this Spring

German folk group Milky Chance is coming to Vancouver this Spring.

The band, comprising Philipp Dauschand and Clemens Rehbein, is performing in support of their newly-released album, Mind the Moon.

The banger of an album, blending folk, electronic, hip-hop, world music, and chillout, has received critical acclaim, and the new tour will promote all 12 new songs.

Milky Chance was wildly successful with its first album Sadnecessary in 2013 and its second in 2017, Blossom. In the words of KUTX, the band’s new album is “frothing with greatness.”

The third album features the band’s token free-flowing, multi-faceted songwriting, but also goes to new territory. Earmilk says it “is a deeper exploration of Philipp Dauschand Clemens Rehbein’s unique instrumental arrangements and effervescent vocals.”

Mind The Moon is “aesthetically, the yearning reggae, Afro-pop, and Latin vibes evoke the classic ’80s style of artists like Sting and Peter Gabriel,” says AllMusic.

NPR Music says that as a band, Milky Chance “embody new twists on the old concept of world music.”
