HOT MILK, have announced their signing to Music For Nations & the brand new single

“I JUST WANNA KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I’M DEAD” (IJWKWHWID) out today, 11th June & which is the title track off the new EP out 10th September 2021.

“IJWKWHWID” is a vivacious call to arms, rammed with sharp hooks and huge, catchy choruses, to encourage everyone, everywhere, to follow their dreams.

“This isn’t just a song, it’s like an internal organ or body part. A very piece of ourselves made at home, recorded at home, produced at home. Where we could cry and laugh and argue and be free. Off we go into the unknown, we don’t know if you will like what we’ve done, but just know it’s real.” Jim Shaw

The new EP ‘I Just Wanna Know What Happens When I’m Dead’ was produced by co-vocalist Jim Shaw & lyrically explores a more personal approach with the band bottling the anxieties and frustrations of their everyday lives. ‘Woozy’ openly tackles depression, ‘Good Life’ takes on societal corruption and the distribution of wealth, while elsewhere the band address the pursuit of happiness in a modern world. 

“These songs are honest,” says Han. “I have nothing to hide. Everyone’s on anti-depressants these days. It’s the world we live in, it makes people sad. Capitalism. Is it broken? 100 per cent. I’m angry that the fact that we’re sold a world that actually doesn’t make your inner peace happy. Humans need love and community and a lot of the time, there is no love and the community has dissolved.”

“We’re angry, both politically and existentially in terms of the system we now live in. But also, we’re angry at the fact that we’re sad quite a lot,” continues Han. “But we’re trying to not just sit there and take it. We’re trying to fix it, by building a family through this band.”

“Life is fragile,” says Jim. “You can’t take things with you, but you can make the best memories. That’s the most important thing in life. Your currency is your memory. What you can take with you is something that absolutely makes the blood pump round your veins and gives you goosebumps,” agrees Han. “That’s what this band is to us. It’s our passion. That’s what this EP is about.”
