Milliken Chamber ist das Synthwave-Projekt von Anna Schmidt und Kevin Czarnik. Im Januar haben sie ihr großartiges Album Absence veröffentlicht – ein elektronischer Cocktail aus dunklem Coldwave und melodisch tanzbarem Synth-Pop. Beide waren Mitglieder der Minimal-Wave-Band PrudenceKevin Czarnik ist erfolgreich mit Forever Grey unterwegs und hat kürzlich mit seinem Synth-Projekt Belladonna Grave ein neues Album veröffentlicht. Anna Schmidt ist klassisch ausgebildete Sopranistin und widmet sich mit ihrem Solo-Projekt Jane Chain den eher düsteren und experimentellen Klanglandschaften. So viel musikalische Kreativität macht neugierig auf das neuste Projekt der beiden.
