angelic milk – “Rebel Black” (Stereogum Premiere)

Last year, we named angelic milk — the rock project of Saint Petersburg-based musician Sarah Persephona — a Band To Watch based on the strength of some early EPs and their effervescent single “IDK How.” This summer, the band will release their first new material since then in the form of an EP, Teenage Movie Soundtrack, which was recorded at Stockholm’s Apmamman Studio. “Rebel Black,” its lead single, nails down what made the project so enchanting in the first place — fuzz and chimes and Persephona’s distant vocals are wrapped up in a song that trades on the imagery of James Dean era Americana, as she begs for someone to take her away from home. Listen below.

angelic milk’s Teenage Movie Soundtrack EP is out 7/15 via PNKSLM Recordings. Pre-order it here.
