THE MILLION – why we’ll never be together

Four piece The Million announce today their second EP why we’ll never be together will be released Friday May 28th. Set to play their SOLD-OUT show at Waywards At The Bank (Sydney) this Saturday, The Million share today their new single ‘Stop/Go’ which will feature on their upcoming EP.

Premiered on triple j good nights, ‘Stop/Go’, produced by Dylan Nash, is tense and sweaty, and captures the sexual attraction of a new relationship. With sticky guitars and spoken vocals, the single paints a sunny picture of the young relationship and was the first track written for the new EP by members Jacob Thomas and Tamon Mashimo with Konstantin Kersting (Mallrat, Tones and I, Jungle Giants).

Jacob says, “Stop/Go was written from a cool title I had in my notes, it turned out to represent the idea of the relationship I had at the time and the instability of it. The song represents how I felt in that moment.

It’s also the only song on the EP written while actually in the relationship, everything else was post-breakup.”

The new track follows the release of street track ‘Rebound’, and three official singles; the funk-tinged stylings of ‘Somebody Better’ , the reverb-soaked honesty of ‘Check Up’ and the most recent ‘Last Call’, a track that draws on ’80s synth-pop, written about the breakdown of a relationship. Combined, all released tracks demonstrate the breadth of why we’ll never be together EP’s vast range, a lively, genre-tripping project that fuses emotionally direct lyrics with slick hooks.

It’s an unwavering EP full of raw, vivid lyrics that centre around an emotionally turbulent time for lead-singer and lyricist Jacob Thomas. Specifically, it’s the story of the breakdown of a relationship and all the motions that you go through afterward from bitterness to liberation.

On the EP, the band worked with revered US producer Colin Brittain (Hands Like Houses, All Time Low) as well as Australian producers Chris Collins (Middle Kids, Gang Of Youths) and Dylan Nash (Angus & Julia Stone). They are joined by a far-reaching and esteemed list of producers including Dom Craik (Nothing But Thieves) who worked on ‘Last Call’ and Nick Anderson (The Wrecks) who added additional production to ‘Somebody Better’. UK mixer Stephen Sedgwick (Gorillaz) and writer Lucy Taylor (Dua Lipa, Friendly Fires, Dagny, Ellie Goulding) also contributed. All the collaborators encouraged an environment of experimentation and the band, “were never afraid to try anything,” as Thomas puts it.

The result is a project that moves seamlessly from slick pop to fuzzier alternative moments. As bitter and frustrated as the lyrics can get, the soundscapes remain buoyant and immediate – a juxtaposition that was especially important for Thomas.

With over 3.4 million streams of their music, they’ve received support from triple j (spot play) , Apple Music playlists – Heaps Indie, Alt Pop, Breaking Pop Spotify’s All New Rock, Pop n Fresh, Indie Arrivals and Come Thru and tastemaker outlets Purple Sneakers, The Interns, Life Without Andy and Pilerats to name only a few.

Having played sold out shows in Sydney, Newcastle, Central Coast & Wollongong (official Yours and Owls pre-party), The Million continue their Last Call Tour with their Sydney show this weekend and the recently announced Melbourne show at the Workers Club on May 13th.
