Downers & Milk are a 7piece collective from Vienna with singer-songwriters Maxím Eczyk and Michael Varga at its core. Ignoring all zeitgeist and categories they create timeless, handwrought music, blending atmospheric Americana, lavish Chamber Pop and fierce Post-Punk into darkly radiant Folk Noir.
Adorned with the two singers’ vocals, elegant arrangements evoke melancholy in Cinemascope and guide through musical landscapes of peers like Tindersticks, Calexico and Sparklehorse.
At Rhiz Downers & Milk will be performing as acoustic quartet, presenting stripped down and intimate versions of their songs.
