Millie Manders and The Shutup create cross-genre punk that is hard to ignore. With lyricism that pokes fun, draws you in or leaves you questioning social norms teamed with incredible vocal dexterity, grinding guitars, irresistible horn hooks and a pumping rhythm section, the Millie Manders Music Machine churns out more raw punk fusion than you can shake a stick at, with a huge amount of Pop appeal.
Millie launched her solo career in 2012, taking her acoustic sound around the UK, building her loyal fan-base and releasing her first EP “Demon”. Singles Demon and Raw saw her get airplay on multiple local radio stations including BBC Introducing Norfolk, Coral Rose Radio in Liverpool, RKC in France, Krystal Radio in Essex and Shoreditch Radio in London, plus regular spins on internet stations in New Zealand, Canada and America.
2018 has seen Millie release an 'almost acoustic' EP and the band release "SHUTUP" and EP that has been track of the week with the lead single "One That Got Away" on Radio Norfolk via BBC Introducing and Radio Woking, and caught the attention of John Kennedy - Radio X who played both Right To Life and One That Got Away exclaiming "You knew she (Millie) was a star".
2019 is no slow train either - Boomtown, Rebellion, Nice N Sleazy and other notable festivals are all confirmed, along with tour dates around the UK and more new material already in the pipeline!
