Milk Teeth have shared their new single, ‘Given Up’.
It marks the band’s first release under their new record deal with Music For Nations, and is billed as “a taste of things to come”.
“Given Up started as a more alt/folk acoustic song with a swung rhythm,” Becky Blomfield explains. “I put my head together with Em and we created something faster, with a lead line that is an earworm.
“It’s simplistic in its format intentionally to highlight the lyrics and mood conveyed. I wrote this at a time where both interpersonal relationships within MILK TEETH and my romantic relationship (that had ended around that time) had me feeling frustrated and angry.
“I was a victim of gaslighting and felt like I was going crazy for almost two years which broke me down to nothing. This song represents the process of working through that time and feeling empowered and realising it wasn’t my fault.”
