Because an acoustic guitar is involved, this German duo is tagged with the "folk" label, which is not appropriate. It's like calling Soul Coughing "jazz," and in a way Milky Chance has more in common with that act's chillaxed college-dorm beat. There is the air of a curious '90s one-hit-wonder to this Simon & Garfunkel for the EDM generation. Thankfully, the rest of the twosome's material is interchangeable with that one hit, "Stolen Dance." The other half of the band's formula, opposite raspy rap-crooner and guitarist Clemens Rehbein, is the electronic rhythm of Philipp Dausch. There's a steady locked groove to this electroacoustic dance-pop, making for the most melancholy of dancefloors.
