Pickled Onion Records present
CASSIA and MILO
[‘Boo Radley’s Tree’ EP Launch]
DITCHIN QUINCY & UNDERGROUND FOXES
Cassia + Milo release their debut EP “Boo Radley’s Tree” on Pickled Onion Records on Monday 24th June and will be perform upstairs in Whelan’s on Wednesday 26th to launch the EP.
While they describe themselves as One Black, One Ginger, One guitar, perhaps Amelia Conophy from Roqueandrolle put it better when she wrote:
“…a Dublin based band who sell themselves on Milo’s nimble guitar work and Cassia’s gorgeous vocals that just ooze soul. Their songs are built upon quirky lyrics and delicate vocal harmonies, whilst featuring an array of instruments including tambourines and bongos.”
Cassia + Milo formed in May 2012, performing the original songs of Milo’s solo project Sasquatch Fortnight. What followed proved to be a whirlwind 12 months playing sold out gigs in the Grand Social, dates in The Academy and Whelan’s alongside recent radio exposure surrounding their Block C Sessions performance of Kid Cudi’s pursuit of happiness. Proud to boast The Vaccines as fans following their midnight appearance at ZEBRA in Whelans, Justin and Freddy from the English indie rock band told John Caddell on Phantom’s Finest Worksongs that they thought Cassia + Milo were “too good for them to get up on stage and perform”.
With a theme of past relationship experience strongly running through Boo Radley’s Tree, both Cassia and Milo shared song writing responsibilities on the EP. While many would consider their writing styles to differ in many ways, when heard together they complement each other perfectly.
The EP was engineered, mixed and mastered by the team at Wavefarm Productions in Station Studios, Balbriggan. Windmill Lane Academy B.A. Honours Degree graduates Tom Corry, Kevin Brennan, and Stephen White founded Wavefarm Productions in 2012. Prior to working with Cassia and Milo the guys had worked with various different acts including ‘Nova Collective’, ‘Matt Martin, ‘Will Nolan and The Wayward Sinner Boys’ and ‘The Tommy Moore Band’.
The bands influences range from MGMT and The Strokes to Johnny Cash and Rihanna. As a result Boo Radley’s Tree is a fusion of Indie, Rock and folk with a heavy dose of soul present throughout.
Over the past year Cassia + Milo have supported a range of diverse acts including Nanu Nanu, Deaf Joe, Autumn Owls, Cara Sebastian, Dem Fools and The Ourz to name but a few.
