Clemens Rehbein (guitar/vocals) and Philipp Dausch (production/DJ) make up the German folk duo Milky Chance. Formed shortly after they finished high school, while you might not recognize the name you will certainly be familiar with the massive hit single “Stolen Dance” off their debut album, Sadnecessary. The album was released on their own label, Lichtdicht Records.
After the song “Stolen Dance” and “Down By the River” were hits in Europe North America began to notice after Spin magazine named it their Album of the Week in 2014. Soon enough “Stolen Dance” became one of the bigger songs of the last part of the year. The fact that the duo combined folk with reggae and electronic music made them stand out from other pop music acts. If you like the sound of that song then you will like most of their stuff as it pretty much all follows the same pattern of down tempo beats and gentle guitar strumming.
Due to their popularity the show sold out in short order.
