Totally Mild

Premiere: Totally Mild Shares Second Single “Lucky Stars” From Forthcoming Album

Nov 29, 2017

Melbourne, Australia pop quartet Totally Mild will be releasing its sophomore album Her via Chapter Records on February 23, 2018, and Under the Radar is premiering the new album's second single "Lucky Stars". The band calls "'Lucky Stars" "...a love song to a band. It's about being thankful for the good things in an uncertain situation." The new song is an unassuming piano ballad of poignant truth.  

Her is the follow up to the band's 2015 acclaimed debut Down Time. About the new album, singer Elizabeth Mitchell says "Her is a record of failure and victory, new desire, stale romance, queer domesticity and what comes when the party is over. I was torn between a new domestic life and the impulse to tear it all away with bad choices. I fell in love, but I wrestled for independence. I was always trying to prove that I didn't need anyone; my wife, my friends, my band. Her is a document of a woman struggling with the idea of potential. We are told that we could be limitless, but we wrestle with unseen personal and structural walls." Her was produced by one-time Architecture In Helsinki member James Cecil.

Totally Mild started out as the solo project of Mitchell and has now become a lush pop quartet made up of guitarist Zachary Schneider, drummer Dylan Young and bassist Lehmann Smith.
