Mild Men Album Launch

Two Palms, London

Named for a Chinese anti-anxiety drug that claimed to make men less aggressive, Mild Men is a band as steeped in its own absurdity as it is serious about exploring it. Death before the History channel, the wild abandon of internet rage, frenetic insomnia, the fallacy of “no regrets” platitudes and sleepwalking towards middle age all feature prominently in the songs that make up their debut album It Can Sink - a reference to, of all things, 90s megamovie Titanic and the salient motivation for this party - which lands on July 6th via Pink Mist.

But don’t let their fatalism fool you. Mild Men revel in every idiosyncrasy, every fumble, every brush with the void. Twisting call-and-response riffs around an off-kilter pop sensibility and distinctly British eccentricity, It Can Sink is a soaring celebration of futility that lifts you up with one hand and reaches for the antacid with the other, because ultimately it knows that real joy of life lies in the desperate, joyous, embrace of its contradictions.
