Bangor, Maine natives Milk St. have dropped the farm-focused music video for their recently-released single “China Town,” a chaotic mushroom-fuelled track with a touching coming-of-age story at its core.

“China Town” is the lead single for their upcoming EP Vermont, which will feature two other singles – “Peyote” and “Pixie Cuts and Angel Dust” – that will be released over the coming months. Sonically, “China Town” is as unique as the underlying story that defines it. Imagine if The Ongoing Concept performed midwest emo; what you have is an unconventional mix of punk, indie rock, and a hint of bluegrass flowing through this confessional anthem.

Vocalist Jonah Wakefield had this to say about the new single:

“‘China Town’ is a song about coming of age and steeping yourself in what truly makes you, you at a very fragile point of your life. It’s about finding out exactly who you are and embracing the uncomfortable in pursuit of self discovery. It’s also about doing mushrooms with your cousins dog.”

Milk St. Includes:

Jonah Wakefield – Guitar/Vocals
Gabe Chambers – Bass
Harry Burns – Drums
