Although it features many of the hooks, riffs and sheer power that fans have come to expect from Millie Manders & the Shutup, it is Silent Screams’ lyrical contact which really hits home hard. Dealing with suicidal thoughts and the feeling of being trapped, Silent Screams is typical of a band whose commitment to social justice is as ingrained inthem as their love of music.
With both Millie and George in the band constantly battling against mental health issues, there’s a truth and poignancy to the track which magnifies the song’s power immensely. Silent Screams feels
destined to become an anthem for those feeling imprisoned by their own thoughts.
Based in both London and Norwich, Millie Manders &The Shutup create cross-genre punk that is hard to ignore.
With lyricism that pokes fun, draws you in or leaves you questioning social norms teamed with incredible vocal dexterity, grinding guitars, irresistible horn hooks and a pumping rhythm section, the Millie Manders Music Machine churns out more raw punk fusion than you can shake a stick at, with a huge amount of pop appeal.
