Millie Manders and The Shutup:
“High-octane, fierce, bursting with attitude and almost obnoxiously addictive" - Fortitude Magazine
"If Kate Nash was actually any good, she'd probably sound like this" - Rock Sound
"The world needs more ballsy female vocalists like this." - MOSH/Hit The Floor
Having started her musical journey at the tender age of five, London born Millie Manders has a rich background in classical, big band jazz and contemporary music ranging from punk to soul and back again, learning clarinet, saxophone, voice, and ukulele.
Millie creates 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.
