Adult contemporary is characterized by its exceptional euphony. In skill, it effortlessly mingles sounds. In intent, it envelops itself in harmonies. In spirit, it has the beguiling ability to disarm listeners. That's why Los Angeles, CA's Milo Greene, the always-evolving indie-pop band, chose the genre as its muse – even naming their third album, Adult Contemporary.
Milo Greene is comprised of Marlana Sheetz, Graham Fink and Robbie Arnett who all share vocal and songwriting duties. Toeing a line between emotional intensity and light-hearted humor is important to the band, because they've never really had the chance to take a breath. Their self-titled debut exploded onto the indie scene in 2012. "It happened extremely fast," Marlana says. "We played two shows and a bidding war happened." Their gorgeous, transcendent music soon appeared in everything from Grey's Anatomy to Supernatural. In this sense, Adult Contemporary refers not just to their reinvention of a genre, but it's also a signpost of the band maturing.
Milo Greene relocated to Nashville and recruited the Grammy-nominated producer Bill Reynolds (Band of Horses, Lissie) to help them write and record Adult Contemporary. "We focused hard on each individual part," Marlana says. Musically, there was nowhere to hide. "Each instrument needed to be important while telling its story. One guitar line had to say something on its own. The snare would tell part of the story."
