Three years after Aforger, British London-based singer-songwriter and musician Douglas Dare announced the release of a new album. Milkteeth is out on February 21st via Erased Tapes. It sees Douglas become confident and comfortable enough with his own identity to reflect on both the joys and pains. Dare grew up on a farm as the youngest member of a large extended family, where he was often found in his own private world, dancing in his mother’s pink ballet dress.
