We’d forgive you for thinking we’d entered the realms of the ridiculous and the surreal when chance happened upon us to mention an unlikely collaboration drawing together the houses of Rowntree and Cadbury’s – seriously we couldn’t make it up if we tried.
Take three young sisters– granddaughters as it happens – of William Cadbury – aye him of the chocolate dynasty and one Blur type by the name of Rowntree as in Dave – stepping out into the pop’s great wilds to turn his hand to the mysteries and wonders of the remix. So why The Cadbury Sisters – well in a fit of comic pique its seems the Blur sticks man couldn’t resist the chance to bring together the chocolate empires for something aptly titled ‘The Rowntree Cadbury’s milk remix’ – ‘Milk’ in case you hadn’t guessed being the track in questions name. Hilarities aside and swiftly to the music. Well this charmer should be appearing on schedules first week in May courtesy of fear of fiction and precedes a planned June release EP entitled ‘Close’. In short ‘Milk’ is quite teasingly affectionate, lilting three part harmonies dimpled in lightly strewn and breezily dreamy folk mosaics much reminiscent of a woodland dwelling siren-esque variant of the Smoke Fairies at work whittling out a somewhat lost art of spell crafting lulling love notes.
