The Henry Millers

Deli Nashville Premiere: The Henry Millers unveil "It's Cold"

The folks over at The Henry Millers are hard at work on a new EP, and they were kind enough to let us at the Deli Nashville give you the first taste! "It's Cold," the first single from the forthcoming release, is a sentimental little number that sounds something like How the Grinch Stole Christmas by way of MGMT. The center-stage metallic drums and wily synth bloops give the track an industrial grit amid the cheery overtones, somewhat like a shuttered factory transformed by a snowy day into a playground wonderland. The song is plenty upbeat and catchy while having, as the title might suggest, an edge that's chilly to the touch. 

It's cold outside, no doubt, so why not stay indoors and stream the newest from The Henry Millers instead? -Austin Phy

The Henry Millers release new single 'Children' + announce debut LP 'Poises'

Young NYC boy/girl duo The Henry Millers have picked up their synthesizers and novels yet again, spinning a new yarn that'll keep you guessing where their ideas keep coming from, while humming its bizarrely catchy hook at the same time. Channeling an almost Arcade Fire-like concern for familial ties, Singer/songwriters John MacCallum and Katie Schecter with latest single 'Children' take on issues unlike anything I've yet heard from them. Taken from forthcoming LP 'Posies,' the song eschews the band's usual flair for literary sexiness. Instead, it issues a warning to prospective parents that's one part good advice, one part hopeless nostalgia. A beautiful sentiment, listen below and get excited for what might herald a new direction for this indie pop group. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

NYC Year End Poll - Indie Pop Submission: The Henry Millers Take 3rd Place

Whenever I think of The Henry Millers, the ultra-literate quartet from Brooklyn, I always think of my parent's music and how every band sorta looked like a family back in the '60s. While not related to one another, singers John MacCallum and Katie Schecter certainly convey a kind of sibling understanding in their discussions of exes ('Mr. Flash Gordon') and love ('Spinning Daises').

Their kind of folksy wisdom isn't out of step with memories of listening to The Mamas and The Papas for latest LP 'Daises'. The record's charm just might bring you into their family too. See the band live when they play at The Studio at Webster Hall on April 1st. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
