Brighton-based virtuoso Milo McNulty has returned with his latest musical project Only Total. With previous projects Morning Smoke and Method Actress attracting praise from the likes of Clash, The Guardian and Louder than War, Milo has been described as ‘if Prefab Sprout had been signed to Mute‘, and will be hoping that debut single ‘Faith’ will have what it takes to reach the heights.
Morning Smoke enjoyed a degree of independent success, with releases on various labels including Cannibal Hymns and Lolipop Records, and tours across the UK including high-profile slots at The Great Escape and headline shows in London venues. However, as Milo’s songwriting developed, the songs didn’t fit Morning Smoke’s sound, leading to the formation of Method Actress and the later decision to go solo with Only Total.
This latest single, while drawing obvious comparisons with the likes of New Order, is wrapped in an air of mystery with Milo describing it as ‘inspired by everything and nothing, just a song’, leaving listeners to make up their own mind. ‘Faith’ was mixed by Josh Harrison and is available now.
