Douglas Dare releases his third and most stripped back album to date Milkteeth today and heads out on a European tour next month starting at Omeara in London on March 16.
Produced by Mike Lindsay, founding member of Tunng and one half of LUMP with Laura Marling, Milkteeth 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.
