Since they started releasing music in the summer of 2019, Mili & Bertie have been making music and gigging relentlessly; boldly claiming their unique sound and place in the UK unsigned artist scene. They have performed all over the world, returning from a 12 date U.S Tour just before the Lockdown and have since caught the attention of BBC Radio, BBC Introducing,Talk Sport and numerous local blogs and radio stations. A summer full of live shows included a support slot for James Walsh (Starsailor) and a live performance on BBC 5 Live radio which led to one of their singles being saved in the British Archives!
Mili & Bertie kicked off the new year by releasing their debut EP ‘Into the Night’ out 11/02/22. The five track dynamic EP by the alternative duo is filled with catchy feel good melodies, honest lyrics and soaring harmonies. The re-release of their track ‘That’s Alright’ makes an appearance on the EP with the new version featuring a guest performance from Baz Warne, front man of legendary punk band: The Stranglers.
The duo are planning a year full of live shows throughout the UK and further afield following the release and have already announced their first few dates of 2022 including their quarter finals gig for the Isle Of White New Blood Competition in London 11/03.’
“Mili & Bertie are creating waves with their boundary-breaking sound. Bringing contemporary edginess to an old-school acoustic folk sound, UK-based duo Mili & Bertie are rather difficult to define. In fact, they admit that their music is difficult to categorise as they want to bring diversity to their sonic sphere – and this is what they really do. Their new EP is as dynamic and refreshing as their live performances; engaging, energetic and effortlessly connects with listeners. While there is a strong folk influence to their music, the melodic arrangements introduce some dream-pop beats to the eclectic style. Receiving coverage from York Calling, The Daily Listening, Roadie Music, and Up And Coming, Mili & Bertie are creating waves with their boundary-breaking sound.”

Featuring 5 tracks, Into The Night is only the beginning for these two, and we have a feeling their sound is going to catch on.”
