Switching up the tinkled ivories for an autoharp, Douglas Dare explores his formative years through a veil of haunting vocals and wraithlike instrumentals.

The melodies on Milkteeth are deliberately simple; Dare wanted it to feel familiar right from the first listen. This music speaks of Dare’s own experiences of universal themes like love, loss, and childhood. Perhaps most importantly, his music gives a voice and a sanctuary to anyone who’s ever felt unusual or out of place. Whether he’s singing of the pain of those in the Magdalene Laundries as on “Whelm”, describing coming out to his parents on “Aforger”, or processing his own childhood isolation on “Milkteeth”, Dare has a graceful honesty and an abiding clarity of vision in his simple and distinctive sound. FFO: Perfume Genius, Lump, Peter Broderick. “There’s little sense of retread here; on the contrary, Dare’s songwriting feel to be improving, even as he pares his music down to the bare essentials” 7/10 - Uncut
