Manchester’s Rainy Miller Unveils Second Album

Rainy Miller will release DESQUAMATION (Fire, Burn. Nobody), a new album, on HEAD II.

Musically, DESQUAMATION is a departure from the Manchester artist’s earlier releases, including his Armor II EP with Blackhaine, on his own Fixed Abode label.

Instead of blissed out ambient and heady beats with pensive lyricism, the release builds on “immersive maximalism” and a “distinctive new musical ground,” we’re told. All 10 tracks are said to be “fiery, intricate, and dense,” stretching across contorted pop and laconic drill with gritty, thought-provoking bars. They put life in modern Britain under the microscope, while delving into self-reflection, angst, trauma, and growth.

Miller is a Preston-born producer who works closely with the likes of Blackhaine, Space Afrika, Iceboy Violet, and Moseley, who feature across the record. He started out making music as a teenager on a digital audio workstation, using his ear for everything, before releasing 2019’s Limbs, his debut album of hazy bedroom pop and hip-hop, on which he fused fragile vocals with smooth, moody melodic beats.

HEAD II is the label of The White Hotel.

Artwork comes from Alex Currie.
