Misty Miller releases new EP Girlfriend and announces tour dates
Misty Miller , who released “Girlfriend” EP today, has now announced a handful of new tour dates. Last Thursday opened up for Jake Bugg at his Shepherd’s Bush Empire show. Misty will then support Tom Odell for four shows early next month before returning to Jake Bugg’s tour as main support for a further six dates at the end of March.
From the EP’s title track – that Zane Lowe made his “next hype” record recently – and its ferocious, lo-fi sound to the crooning intro of Little Drummer that bursts into life on a wave of crashing guitars and the soulful lament of Devil, the Girlfriend EP showcases Misty’s unique songwriting talents and musical dexterity and ambition to the full.
Misty Miller is from South West London and has been writing her own songs since the age of eight. Inspired by the likes of Patti Smith, Iggy Pop and The Stooges, The Velvet Underground, Lou Reed, Irma Thomas, The Sonics, The Gories and the blues, Misty’s eclectic taste has informed a lot of her music to date. At the age of 15 she recorded her first album and released it on AWOL in 2011 that went on to sell 60,000 copies.
