Friends in high places can be a double-edged sword at times. Sheffield’s Milburn came to prominence after the exemplary live shows supporting their local kin Arctic Monkeys. They may have assisted in an initial leg up, but the quartet remains fixed under the considerable shadow of their million selling brethren. Here’s hoping these shows and the release of their debut album Well Well Well will help shunt their pithy, observational pop diatribes further into the spotlight.
