Milky Chance are Philipp Dausch and Clemens Rehbein. They met at school, growing-up listening to Bob Marley, Hendrix & Red Hot Chili Peppers to name but a few. Getting together to make music in the early days was less about plotting global success, it was instead more about having fun. One of their first songs, however, quickly changed things – It was Stolen Dance. More specifically it was a unique sounding folktronica song that spanned across most commercial & alternative radio playlists across the globe. That moment they uploaded it to Youtube was about six years ago, but the fact it’s one of the most Shazamed songs of all time tells you all you need to know.
Like a Darwinian success story, Milky Chance quickly adapted to their new found surroundings & pulled together an album & was touring the world within months. That debut album, Sadnecessary, that boasts other successful singles Down By The River & Flashed Junk Mind, went on to become a multi-platinum record in various countries that saw this German duo play on US late night shows like Fallon, Kimmel & O’Brien and garner every major worldwide press outlet that had an interest in music.
Fast-forward a few years to 2017 & the band launched their second album Blossom. This album faced the oh-so-common question of whether to keep to what brought success or develop into something that changed with the winds of the current chart trends. The band chose to hold strong to what made them so popular, but adding far more layers in quality learned on the road. Lead singles Cocoon & Doing Good embodied their approach and it was a hugely successful album, amassing hundreds of millions of plays across streaming platforms, and more Gold & Platinum records came tumbling in worldwide, and they went on to play to 241 shows across 41 countries.
