Four years after his celebrated second album, Aforger, British musician Douglas Dare is returning to the spotlight with his new, third album, Milkteeth, which was released on Erased Tapes in February.

After his debut with Whelm in 2014, Douglas Dare proved once again that he understands his musical craft with his much gloomier 2016 album, Aforger. After that his career continued to blossom: in 2017 he was invited to participate, with a re-interpretation of Dance Me to the End of Love, in the Leonard Cohen exhibition titled A Crack in Everything at the Contemporary Art Museum of Montreal, which is currently being shown at the Jewish Museum in New York and at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco in September 2020. In 2018 he followed an invitation from Robert Smith with a performance at his Meltdown Festival in the Southbank Centre, London, and in the following year he appeared with Anna Calvi at the Manchester International Festival curated by David Lynch.

Dare's music tells of his personal experiences with universal topics such as love, loss and childhood. Above all, however, it creates a space of refuge for everyone that thinks they're lost, giving a voice to all of those among us who feel different, or out of place. Whether he sings, like on Whelm, of the pain of those in the Magdalene Laundries in Ireland, or he describes, like on Aforger, when he came out to his parents, or processes, like on Milkteeth, the isolation of his own childhood, Dare does it all with his particular openness and candour, and the clear vision of his simple but distinctive sounds.
