The German duo Milky Chance exploded onto the international stage with their Much Mega Hit, “Stolen Dance.” The song charted all over the world beginning in 2013 and was a staple of alternative radio by 2014. The song came form their 2014 album Sadnecessary and the song “Stolen Dance” would become one of the most Shazam’d songs of all time.
The band returns with a new song called “Cocoon” (which came out on Friday but I took that day off….sawry). We’re returbning to familiar territory with Milky Chance. A bright and bouncy alt-folk leaning song.
Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch were schoolmates before forming the band. They explained in their press release that the song came form a period of reflection on the huge success of “Stolen Dance.’ Clemens adds the song is “trying to find a place where you can be yourself and not be distracted; to slow down and reflect on yourself.”
On Triple J in Australia Clemens said, “It’s about making a fall and hurting someone but working with that fall but not in terms of desiring something but embracing what you’ve done and work with it and look forward, trying it back to that cocoon – some time or space where you can be yourself and get rid of all distractions.”
