Confirmation is the alias of Peter Milos, a Berlin-based artist who has turned our heads with new single ‘I Don’t Want Your Number’.
The track has a distinctly 80’s feel to it (which we touch on in this interview), with its clattering, marauding synth patterns sitting right at the centre of the song.
When making the decision to step back from music and focus on his day job as a social worker, fate intervened, and a chance encounter put him in touch with producer and sound engineer Niko Stoessl (Depeche Mode, David Gahan, Crystal Castles, Moto Boy). The pair soon struck up a friendship, which swiftly led to a musical collaboration, and the two began working on Confirmation’s ideas which culminated in the release of his debut track, “Motorbike”.
Following the recent release of ‘I Don’t Want Your Number’, we caught up with the artist to find out a little more about the track and what else we can expect from Confirmation.
Hi Confirmation! Thanks for taking the time to speak with us. For those that aren’t familiar with your sound, how would you best describe it?
Hi Music is for Lovers, thanks for having me on. I would say my sound is what the parents of millennials always hoped their future kids would be listening to. Also while we’re at it, I want those people to know that this is just the beginning.
What have you been up to since the release of ‘Motorbike’?
In the spirit of authenticity I did a road trip on a motorbike. Somehow everything managed to time up perfectly with the temporary easing of coronavirus border restrictions in Europe. I’m not particularly superstitious but I think the universe really wanted me to ride a motorbike this summer. And the motorbike I rode was my friend Yann’s. He’s in the hospital right now, so I’d like to take this opportunity to give him a shout out and tell him I love him. Other than that just enjoying my time in the studio overlooking the city and playing whatever a glass of white wine tells me to play. It’s been really fun and I can’t wait to show you everything we’ve done.
Tell us a bit about your new track, ‘I Don’t Want Your Number’. Why should people be listening?
If you’ve ever needed to bring someone down from their high horse just so you can live your life in peace, this song is for you. If you’re reading this, please vote.
Both of your singles incorporate a very distinct 80s synth style, who would you cite as an inspiration to your sound?
How does it feel to be working with such an acclaimed producer on your debut singles?
Niko is the long lost peanut butter to my jelly. I’m so happy we found each other and I couldn’t imagine a better combination.
How have you been keeping creative during the challenging times we find ourselves in?
Very easily, there’s never been more for a writer to complain about.
You’ve worked in the music industry for a number of years now, what about now felt like the right time to release music?
This process is live and you’re getting it as soon as it comes. This song was nothing more than a twinkle in my eye a few weeks ago and I think your head is going to explode when you hear what we wrapped up last Friday night. But first we have to finish choreographing the dance for the music video…
How do you merge together your two vocations, as a musician and a social worker?
They go hand in hand actually. It’s all quite emotional and they tend to balance each other out. To all of you whose lives got turned upside down by this whole pandemic disaster, trust me, if you need stability in your life, become a social worker. No matter what happens, you will never be out of a job.
