Milo’s style for her first EP, Limey, was described has having “charmingly-crooned vocals and jazz-funk infusion” “Limey” contained “jazz-inspired hip-hop” beats. Milo cites “real life” as her main starting point when it comes to writing music, she has described her writing method as having “no conventional process”. Milo’s writing process is not “forced” and Milo says it usually begins while she is traveling in which she will “write a line here and there” which is followed by a producer sending her a “beat” the Milo returns to the line and begins writing and expanding it. Her production is inspired by artists such as Kid Cudi, N.E.R.D, as well as her reggae-DJing grandfather. Milo grew up listening to her mothers Jazz music which has been one of her biggest musical influences saying “I’m instantly attracted to music with some kind of Jazz element to it, but I also think the fact that even my mum never played only one genre in the house rubbed off onto me, I don’t want to have just one sound in my music when there’s so many other genres that inspire me.” Milo is ispired by Corinne Bailey Ray and Amy Winehouse and the way they convey their emotions. Rainy was influenced by producer and singer Pharrell and cites in use of a mixture of genres as a major influence praising his ability to mix “rock with psychedelic-sounding stuff and R&B”.

Rainy Milo – Bankrobber Lyrics:
Daddy was a bankrobber
But he never hurt nobody
He just loved to live that way
And he loved to steal your money

Some is rich, and some is poor
That’s the way the world is
But I don’t believe in lying back
Sayln’ how bad your luck is

So we came to jazz it up
We never loved a shovel
Break your back to earn your pay
An’ don’t forget to grovel

Daddy was a bankrobber
But he never hurt nobody
He just loved to live that way
And he loved to steal your money

Imagine if all the boys in jail
Could get out now together
Whadda you think they’d want to say to us?
While we was being clever

So we came to jazz it up
We never loved a shovel
Break your back to earn your pay
An’ don’t forget to grovel

Daddy was a bankrobber
But he never hurt nobody
He just loved to live that way
And he loved to steal your money

Daddy was a bankrobber
But he never hurt nobody
He just loved to live that way
And he loved to steal your money.
