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 feels to be improving, even as he pares his music down to the bare essentials” 7/10 - Uncut

"Elegant and delicately layered, 'Milkteeth' feels grandiose despite its minimalism, like a solo dancer performing an elaborate piece of movement. It acknowledges that no matter how far we have come, how much we have grown, our most childish fears are often with us for life. It feels honest, organic, and will undoubtedly resonate with anyone who has ever felt strange, or shy, or small" - Loud & Quiet.
