The band, by any other name, might sound as sweet. But some might be a little put off by their moniker, the Milk Carton Kids. The folk-pop duo of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan, known for tight harmonies and compelling lyrics, acknowledge that discomfort. “It’s usually a dark and depressing image because of what it represents,” concedes Pattengale in an interview with Goldenplec.
