What Made Milwaukee Famous may unashamedly wear their pop on their sleeves, but that new-wave sheen is stretched taut over a muscular frame of sweaty rock. Milwaukee's energetic, forceful, and impassioned music feels immediately familiar. Michael Kingcaid's laid-back vocals swoon and swagger in and out of the bands rolling melodies, and although sonically polished the music maintains just enough rough edges to keep things interesting.
What Made Milwaukee Famous create pop that's rockin' enough to shake the rafters at your favorite venue, but would also be a perfect backdrop to a drive down the coast. It's energetic, forceful, and impassioned.
