Since returning to Sweden from their packed show at Iceland Airwaves and the Reeperbahn Festival in late 2019, just before the pandemic broke loose, the acclaimed dark wave duo Pink Milk have been working hard on finishing their anticipated second album. The debut "Purple" was given the highest rating in Swedish music magazine GAFFA who called it "a dazzling display of alternative rock music" and "the best album in many years" while the British magazine The Indiependent called it "one of the most consistently great post-punk albums of the year." Pink Milk was also nominated for best rock / metal of the year in the prestigious Swedish national radio award P3 Gold, Album of the Year and Breakthrough of the Year in the Gaffa Prize.
The new album is displaying the same gloomy atmospheric reverb-filled echoing sound and enslaving melodies that Pink Milk have been known for, but there is also a new side to it - this time we hear inspiration from asian traditional music and unusual instruments. Lyrically, "Ultraviolet" tells a series of intertwined dark stories like a comic album, ment to produce manga-like images in the listeners head.
