Band on Band: Miele set to release new album “Transience”
Miele is a Boston-based alternative rock band that pulls from a diverse drawing board of art rock, psychedelia, soul, grunge, metal, and funk influences. Miele straddles the line between alt rock and art rock, with dark, soulful female vocals, and startling switches between mystical melodies and grungy/funky/tear-your-face-off rock.
The band was forged in Cambridge in 2014, emerging out of mutual interests and employment in therapy and music. The name “Miele”, meaning “honey” in Italian, was chosen as a playful nod to singer Nilles’ and guitarist Spilsbury’s on-stage honey drinking antics, as well as a representation of the often mellifluous nature of Miele’s sound. The words of Miele reflect on the human condition; they celebrate the emotions, spirit, and wisdom that lives and breathes in all of us, as well as the misunderstood rage, the desire, and the chaos that erupts out of us when we cannot give it a voice.
After, independently releasing their first EP “Seed Crystal” in August of 2016, Miele released “Anxious Ghost”, the first single off their Kickstarted debut full-length album Transience on April 13, 2018. The full album “Transience” is slated for release on June 22, 2018 at The Burren. The show also features local bands – Man Trouble + Boketto the Wolf!
