Millington announces vibrant new single 'Spark In The Dust' and debut EP launch show at Bella Union. The backend of 2016 has no signs of slowing down for Melbourne-via-UK singer-songwriter Millington. Having already swept through the Internet with his fascinating video for debut single - Being - (which has chalked up over 120K views on Vimeo), the folkster has gifted us his latest single - Spark In The Dust - taken from forthcoming debut EP Being due for release via Ditto on January 21, 2017. #millingtonmusic
The brand new single provides clear evidence that Millington is no one trick pony; instead, 'Spark In The Dust' provides another great example of why the soloist's vibrant songwriting is being celebrated both here in Australia, and overseas.

'Spark In The Dust' possesses all the appropriate ingredients for a feel good, grin-inducing folk track. From the slow burning chordal introduction to its vibrant feel-good chorus, Millington's follow up single to his well-celebrated debut release hits the mark across the board.

One of the most appealing facets of Millington's songwriting is his ability to channel such a positive energy through his simple, yet immediately memorable vocal melodies. 'Spark In The Dust' follows up from where 'Being' left off but injects a fresh perspective on what motivates Tom Millington's musical process

"Spark in the dust' is a landscape of sounds and words exploring the connections between elements, spirit, land, animal and potential. I wanted to connect with time and place with this track and remind myself that transcendental ideas if acted on, can become powerful realities." - Millington

It probably goes without saying; Tom Millington's charm is, even more, inducing live on stage. Saturday 21 January will see the soloist launch his debut EP Being at the Bella Union Hotel, Carlton, and will no doubt provide further confirmation as to why Millington is one of the country's most exciting talents.
