Vibrating, dub infused trip-hop.
Like a slow injection into the veins of the listener
rendering them captive.
It's hard to resist this aural unleashing of vibrant sounds and melodies.

Biography

UK born Milly James, otherwise known as Nicole Reid, spent a number of years honing her skills as guest vocalist and co-writer with The Ku-Ling Brothers (Steve Malinder, Shane Norton, Jack Lucas). She has also recorded with The PROBLEM KIDS (UK), performed with and supported huge artists like: MOLOKO, SOUL II SOUL, MAD PROFESSOR, URSULA RUCKER and ROOTS MANUVA.
Re-casting herself as a solo performer, in 2010 Milly was keen to experiment with a new sound, which led to a cool, collaborative release on ONE LOVE/SONY 2010 DUBSTEP INVASION Compilation, with RUN WITH THE FLAME.

MILLY JAMES collectively is Nicole on vocals, keys/ synthesizer, along with Nicholas Kempt on electronic percussion, and Aidan Gordon on guitar.
The trio is very proud to release their new EP Running With Wolves. Which is already receiving copious airplay on local and national radio and street press praise:

"A wonderful singer with soulful and surprisingly indie sounding tracks." - CUT AND PASTE

“Jagged leftfield trip-hop and dub-inspired beats contrast with soulfully crooned vocals…
The arrangements are so inventive and unpredictable as to transcend genre…
A surprising, thoroughly enjoyable first release that bodes well for an interesting recording career to come”
- DRUM MEDIA

"There's A tonne of potential here...
Keep it up!" - TRIPLE J

Accompanying the EP is the fantastic RUNNING WITH WOLVES video clip by award winning Perth artist Tarryn Gill, recently screened on ABC's RAGE. The video features the incredible dance talent of Niharika Senapati.

Lyrics

RUNNING WITH WOLVES

Written By: NICOLE REID (aka MILLY JAMES)

We're running with wolves
we're heeding the sound
the beat of our hearts

The roar in our ears
ignoring the fear
of being caught

Chorus

And we run
out of reach into the night
and we run
out of reach into the night

At a secret hour
we're beating the ground
with a thrill in our feet

We're leading the pack
with the wind in our backs
giving us speed

Repeat chorus

And we run
out of reach into the night
and we run
out of reach into the night
