Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part of our Song of the day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unrealeased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJ’s think you should hear. Today’s song, featured on the Morning Show with John Richards, is “Rebel Black” by Angelic Milk from the 2016 EP Teenage Movie Soundtrack on PNKSLM.
The teenage saltiness and spunk is alive and well in Sarah Persephona. Her alt-princess panache and gusto fortify her identity as a youthful alternative icon. Angelic Milk’s catchy debut single from Teenage Movie Soundtrack, “Rebel Black”, is like a well composed doll, haired teased out with fuzz, manicured with Psychocandy lipgloss, and dressed in Colleen Green pop punk demeanor. Scenes from “Rebel Black” play out like a cult dramedy. Cult in the sense of scratching a certain niche sound. Drama in the sense of “Yesterday taught me I’m dying here / let’s get out of here” and humor in the sense of a don’t-mess-with-me, prissy feistiness.
When it comes to touring, though, all seems to be quiet on the Angelic Milk front, but as she’s been popping out EPs frequently, you’ll want to keep up with new releases and news on her website and their Facebook page. Another awesome single Angelic Milk released last year was “IDK How,” which you can check out in the video below.
