Who Are We?


Hello and welcome – we are an orchestral pop band made up of imes lidolls: Die Milch!

Welcome to the fundraising page for our new music video.

Home page: http://www.diemilch.com


[Introductory Video]



For those of you who don’t know, we are Die Milch – a band who combine a love of Gothic and Lolita fashion with classical music!


Coco studied classical music from a young age and then fell in love with European culture, gothic architecture and then, of course, Lolita fashion. And so, Die Milch was born, creating pop music adorned with classical elements, virtuosic violin playing, and a strong visual element. 


Gothic and Lolita fashion was born in Japan and then spread around the world, capturing the hearts of many. Die Milch’s music has also resonated with people from a variety of cultures. When we played in the UK, we were labelled as “medieval pop” and “chamber pop,” which we loved!


As a group, Die Milch’s core message is to break down prejudices. We want to create something that is unique and beautiful, with an experience that we hope you all will love!




However, in order to do this and reach even more people, we need your help in creating our first music video in four years!



So What Is Our Aim?


At the beginning of 2020, our violinist Will had finally come back to Japan from Austria and we were excited to do more live shows with all of the dolls back together! However, with the spread of Covid-19 across the globe, we as musicians have been suffering with being unable to play live concerts for our fans.


Fortunately for us, these lovely fans of ours have been asking for us not to give up on Die Milch, and so we decided that makes this exactly the perfect time for us to release something new for you all.


With many of you stuck at home, we decided that a new music video would be the best way for us to deliver some of the magic of Die Milch into your lives!




We decided that a music video would be the best way to deliver the Die Milch experience – to present to you our unique chamber pop sound along with our striking Lolita fashion.


However, in order to create something of a high enough quality for both you and for our expectations, it has become clear to us that the only way that this would be feasible is through a crowdfunding campaign. And so, we’re hoping that you, our lovely fans, can come together and help make our new music video a reality!



What Are We Offering?


Although the main aim of this fundraiser is for our new music video, we thought that as many of you are self-isolating right now, it would be fun to allow you to take part in the process.


We haven’t decided which song to use for the new music video, and we want our fans to decide for us what song you want us to use!


How Do I Pick a Song?


We will be sending out a questionnaire to everyone who contributes to this campaign.


Timeline

- Mid-Late August: Send out the questionnaire

- 12th September: Announce the results

*We are planning to make the announcement during our solo gig on that date.

 (We will be giving out more details at a later date.)





About the Fundraiser


As we have a small amount of funds already, we have decided to make this a flexible fundraiser – even if we don’t hit our target, we will still create a music video for all of you who have contributed. Hitting our target will help us to make the music video the highest quality it can be.


Our target for this campaign is: 700,000 Japanese yen.


Here is the breakdown of the costs:

・Editing costs

・Location costs

・Costumes

・Crowdfunding fees

・Fees to create rewards

・Other fees for this project


Despite the restrictions due to Covid-19, we hope that this project can bring some smiles to everyone! Thank you all for your support!






Die Milch Bio




Die Milch are a Gothic/Lolita musical unit. Mixing classical, pop, rock, and electronic genres, we create a unique sound layered with Lolita-style singing and powerful violin melodies.


Die Milch began performing as a unit after the release of their first album Metronom in March 2012. With striking musicality, coquettish dancing, and a cheeky stage presence, Die Milch brings smiles to all in attendance. This is one band you do not want to miss out seeing live.
