FEATURED SONG: Milky Chance - Stolen Dance

This week the Featured Song at SurfStitch goes to German duo Milky Chance and their re-released 2013 hit, ‘Stolen Dance’. The strong engagement from acoustic, electronic, folk and reggae elements are all contributing factors that help make Milky Chance so interesting, as each new hit spreads the group’s name further and further around the Globe. Milky Chance is made up of friends Clemens Rehbein as vocalist and musician and Philipp Dausch as DJ, and when asked what genre of music they play, the usual response is ‘Folktronica’ or ‘Laptop Folk’. Either way, the German duo will lead you and other listeners in and keep you hungry for more, with the deep vocals of Rehbein and attractive bass and drums sounds almost seeming hypnotising.

‘Stolen Dance’ was originally released in 2013 under the groups own label, with the song going massive on YouTube. This lead to increased touring and more exposure of the song, topping charts in countries it officially wasn’t even released in yet, such as the United Kingdom. In May this year, the single was re-released on a 4-Track ‘Stolen Dance EP’ album by Lichtdicht Records and Republic Records, its success only continuing to grow after attention was bought back to the great song. Just by listening to ‘Stolen Dance’, listeners can immediately realise that the mix of guitar riffs and electronic beats go together hand in hand, proving far from overwhelming.stolendance1

‘Stolen Dance’ is available through iTunes and also on CD on the bands full album – Sadnecessary. For now however, it’s time to sit back, relax and listen to this week’s Featured Song, ‘Stolen Dance’ by Milky Chance. It’s perfect for a quiet Tuesday afternoon!
