Fizzy Milk is the sophomore solo album from Gareth Thomas, available to purchase from June 17.
Featuring the brilliant lead single I’d Like, which garnered over 14,000 plays on Spotify within a month of its release and All Eyes In The Room which has already clocked 60,000 plays.
Fuelled by clever instrumentation the album is a reflection of Gareth’s generally happy headspace, with songs that are more outward and designed towards being fun to play live.
The quirky title of the album came about, inspired by the experiments of some kids Gareth knows who decided to pour milk into a Sodastream, which turned out to be the perfect analogy for his ideas. Wanting his new album to have all the fizz and bang of pop music but underscored by something wholesome and nourishing, Fizzy Milk won’t rot your guts but instead will leave you fulfilled and better off by the end of it.
Written over the last two years and originally intended to be new Goodshirt songs, Gareth recruited Jonathan Burgess on bass and Scott Mason on drums to join him in recording the album. Fizzy Milk began as elaborate home demos with live drums, bass, and brass recorded at The Lab Studio, complemented by the technical expertise of Simon Gooding who came on board with Gareth in engineering the album.
