After spending the last few months building his reputation for fresh and engaging releases, fast-rising artist H.MIL is back once again with his glittering new offering 'Sangria'.

So with the new single available now, we sat down with him to find out more about his background and influences over the years.
What was the first band you fell in love with?
The 1st band I fell in love with was Red Hot Chili Peppers.
What has been you’re primary inspiration in writing music?
Life and everything that comes with it, the good and the bad. People I meet on nights out. Feelings form moments in the past and even other peoples experiences. As an artist you take inspiration form everything you see. I think writing is really therapeutic for me the built up emotions and thoughts that I might not wanna share get let out. I love telling story’s and love watching other people fit that feeling or moment in time into there own life and experiences.
What is a song you wish you had written?
That’s life by Frank Sinatra.
If there was any moment in your career you could relive, what would it be?
I haven’t really thought about reliving my past moments, I know it sounds silly but I always close my eyes and relive a moment that hasn’t happened yet. Sometimes I think about me on stage wining a Grammy, going over my speech and saying it to the crowd. It looks like a long shot now but I’ve got really big dreams and even bigger aspirations.
Which artist would you love to share the stage with?
J Cole 100% he’s a real big inspiration for me and 1 of the two reasons why I do what I do.
And is there an artist you would love to collaborate with as well?
Biggie smalls for sure he is my Favourite artist of all time I know I can’t collaborate with him now but in a ideal world he’s the one, and the 2nd reason why I do what I do.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
Exactly where I’m supposed to be.
