about

Recorded at Red Bull Studios
Mastered by Ben Lawson

The much-anticipated debut sees Miloux’s unique beats-based tracks presented alongside her incredible vocal talent, all of which has been entirely created by Miloux herself. Five tracks running the aural gambit from sparse and lingering to pulsating and infinitely memorable.

Drawing influence from such great electronic artists as Purity Ring, Grimes and James Blake, Miloux has combined those pop elements with her own ideas, influences and musical experiences – jazz, classical choral music, and 90’s R&B. The result is EP 1.

Opening track ‘Pocket’ signals what is to come – haunting jazz/soul vocals combining with diverse and interesting production, with Miloux handling everything. Recorded at Red Bull Studio Auckland, EP 1 tells tales of regret at losing time, love, and chances, all through chord/synth-driven ethereal music.

Across five tracks, EP 1 showcases an artist who has spent years in the music scene honing her craft, and created her own sound. EP 1 contains five originals, plus a killer remix of ‘Beaches’ courtesy of one of Auckland’s finest producer duos, Stack & Piece, amping up the intensity while still maintaining the chill factor.

Track Name: Pocket
There’s a hole in my pocket and it’s starting to leak
If you want us together you should find it and see.
For the moment we wanted there’s a long, slow burn
All the highs that we wasted you could take them and turn it too

Ten summers I waited for something
But there’s no time that I don’t see
All I do is (all I do is)
Spend every night in the day.
And all of the moments I live for
I watch them go but I really need more
All I do is (all I do is)
Spend every night in the day.

Take apart all my pieces I could watch them fly on
To the rooms and the places that I spent it all on
There’s a stone in my pocket but I kept it for you
If you want us together you should watch what we do

Make all the space fill we could just relearn
Use all the time til nothing could return
I’ve lived like I’d known what was the reason I came here
Even though I wanted all the things I couldn’t do there.


Ten summers I waited for something
But there’s no time that I don’t see
All I do is (all I do is)
Spend every night in the day.
And all of the moments I live for
I watch them go but I really need more
All I do is (all I do is)
Spend every night in the day.
Track Name: Me and Mine
You left it ‘cause its easy
there’s nothing left to please me
And if that doesn’t scare you, I’ll leave it here before you
And I was in the slow line
I waited for this all night
And though it wasn’t for you
It seems they all adore you.

The times I waited for it
Thought money seemed to fall in
There’s nothing like the morning of days when things felt sure.
And I was in the black light
I hadn’t noticed lately
That nothing else was daily

I’d been alive til I saw what we fell for
I do it right just to please.
Four little words came before, and it’s all you
I do it right just to see.

If you want to step in the doorway
I’d do anything I like
And if you could only give room for light.
And if I could only remember
All of the times we lied
There would be room for me and mine.
Track Name: These Rules
If you can’t find or feel it or
What’s the use of being trapped in this time
And if I wasn’t feeling your every little word, these rooms I like
And if you weren’t in it for me then where’s the end of the long line
And if I wasn’t feeling your every little word
These words, these rules

These Rules

And I meant when I said it you’re on my mind like a breeze on the line
But if you weren’t in it for all of me then what do you like
And I need what you’re giving me
But why do you keep holding behind
You believe what you’re telling me
Every little word, these words, these rules

These Rules
Track Name: Hold It Back
There’s been a lot of time where the fever’s strong
Thought I could take it when everything was wrong
All of the people done away with seem
To underestimate what the hours could mean

If it’s all good hold it back, make it stop
There’s been a trial and an error
But the time’s gone, hold it back, make it stop
I would like nothing better
Than to know what things are like from the peak of where there seems to be something to see

There’s been a lot of time where the feeling’s wrong
Sun hot and saturating the year that’s gone
If it’s all condescension maybe I could take
More than I ever know I could, for your sake

If it’s all good hold it back, make it stop
There’s been a trial and an error
But the time’s gone, hold it back, make it stop
I would like nothing better
Than to know what things are like from the peak of where there seems to be something to see

Hold back, wait until the morning
All the pieces are falling through
Don’t be, I can’t, wait more, for chance
There must be some kind of way for us to change
I’d leave it all behind for you so you could change
And even in the coldest moments of the day we can’t believe is really here, for,
There must be some kind of way for us to change

If it’s all good hold it back, make it stop
There’s been a trial and an error
But the time’s gone, hold it back, make it stop
I would like nothing better
Than to know what things are like from the peak of where there seems to be something to see
Track Name: Beaches
Stars and pieces of you and I were left somewhere on the beaches
I am looking to forward to only love from the masses
Alone I prefer these places.

Melt and a fire, there is only one thing that I truly desire :
ice and cold and solace from the light and the lighter
Some days I’d rather be alone with my head.

And thought I see the city lights that I adore
I’ll be wanting more
And though I breathe the air I’ve all breathed before
I’ll be wanting more
