Lead singer Nathaniel Peacock wrote the songs with fellow band members Harry Bohmer (Guitar), Julian Addati (Bass) Ewen Stewart (Drums) and their live sounding EP was produced by Colin Wynne of Thirty Mill Studios in Melbourne.
MYLK’s debut EP encapsulates the young band’s successful journey from four school friends playing together for fun at home, to performing sell out shows on the East Coast.
Mylk’s name came about from their lead singer Nathaniel’s nickname in High School. Retelling the story, Harry says “he used to have stark blonde hair and so he naturally acquired the nickname Milky. We thought we’d throw in a bit of pizazz and change it to Mylk for our band. We do often get mistaken for vegan mylk but we’re not complaining.”
Their versatility as musicians and songwriters is highlighted throughout the EP and especially on alt- rock track ‘Holy Moly’ to the breezy indie-pop vibe of ‘Snooze’.
Their new single ‘Amends’ is “a melancholy groove about yearning for friendship and solace after a difficult relationship, even with the person you were in the relationship with.”
A staple for their loyal fans, ‘Amends’ shows a more vulnerable side to the band whilst keeping the signature easy going feel that their listeners have come to know and love.
Reflecting on their debut EP, MYLK says “It seems so strange to be releasing our debut EP and having to watch the reaction through a computer screen, but even though there is this disconnection, the support we have seen so far has almost made us forget that we’re playing gigs from our couches and broadcasting it through a phone.”
MYLK’s debut EP ‘Excursion’ is out now.

“Melbourne band Mylk have been steadily making a name for themselves since their formation in 2017, and their latest offering ‘Snooze’ is a dreamy cementing of the fact that they’re not a band to ignore.”
Paired with strumming guitar and catchy vocals, this light-hearted larrikin-esque-ness is an unstoppable combo that keeps their music both fun and hyper-accessible, cornering a strong market with a captivating sound and a just as captivating image.
