Douglas Dare announces Milkteeth Tour with new video

6.2  2020


Douglas Dare has shared the playful new video for his latest single The Joy in Sarah's Eyes, taken from his forthcoming album Milkteeth 

"We filmed on Margate beach, a stones throw away from where the album was recorded. The open shoreline and cloudless blue sky provided us with a boundless space to play. It was important not only to express the childlike freedom but also the freedom to be feminine; in the beginning we see stiff and awkward poses tightly held in by a suit, then complete free expression celebrating queerness in a pink dress that reminds me of one I wore constantly as a child." — Douglas Dare

Premiered by FLAUNT magazine in the US, the video shot by Jodie Canwell with direction from Jordon Britton and Douglas himself. Released on February 21, Milkteeth was produced by Mike Lindsay Milkteeth was produced by Mike Lindsay — founding member of Tunng and one half of LUMP with Laura Marling — in just twelve days, and sees Douglas become confident and comfortable enough with his own identity to reflect on both the joys and pains of youth. In doing so, he has established himself as a serious 21st century singer-songwriter with an enduring lyrical poise and elegant minimalist sound.

Following appearances at the David Lynch-curated Manchester International Festival in July, our label stage at Wonderfruit Festival in Thailand and OOAM Festival in Switzerland this month, Douglas Dare has announced a European tour starting with a release concert in London at Omeara on March 16.
