TUNE St. Francis Hotel - Milkshake (feat. Portugal. The Man)
St Francis Hotel are an Irish duo based in London.
Their new single ’Milkshake’ is being released on 17th January 2020 via Danger Mouse’s 30th Century Records.
‘Milkshake’ follows the duo’s latest single ‘The Truth Is Dead’, which was featured across BBC Radio 6 Music, NME, The Line Of Best Fit and more. The track is the latest to be taken from their upcoming debut album We Fall Together, which includes collaborations with Gaz Coombes, Max Rad, and Waterstrider, and more.
The song was written with Portugal. The Man, who perform the vocals, and The Clash's Mick Jones, who plays lead guitar.
Inspired by old school Hip-Hop and Soul, the track’s delicate groove, intricate piano and guitar melodies combine to create a lo-fi jam reminiscent of 70s Shuggie Otis. The track is highlighted by Portugal. The Man’s recognisable vocals, whose cynical lyrics are inspired by the rise of ‘milkshaking’ right-wing politicians in recent times.
