Yet another incredibly talented Brisbane band, Millions is building a reputation for producing tantalizing indie rock. The four-piece was formed from members of three local bands and were quickly picked to perform at the Splendour in the Grass Festival in mid-2011. They’ve also supported the likes of Unknown Mortal Orchestra and the Grates on their recent Australian tours.
With a debut EP on the horizon, the guys recently released “Slow Burner” (2011 saw the release of two other singles “Those Girls” and “Guru”). More of the classic-rock style than the surfy, lo-fi “Guru,” it has a definite Arctic Monkey’s vibe to it. Millions have seemingly spanned eras, with a combination of newer indie pop tendencies mixed with an old-school rock swagger. This blend of styles makes for a great listen.
Being well-received locally already, the EP will no doubt bring on further support for Millions. It’s great to hear a band doing their own thing.
