Miles Kane - 'First Of My Kind'
Miles is becoming even more of a class act
Is this change of tack a good thing? Absolutely. This is still Miles as we know and love him – but now there seems to be more of him. His powerful Lennon-licked vocals bluster with reinvigorated force; the creepy Scott Walker-ish rhythms tip-toe towards the gates of ‘Bond theme pastiche’ but thankfully stay the right side of them. We’ll call his wordplay, erm, classic rather than cliché (he notes that an object of affection is “as cold as ice” at least once), and that’s fine: Miles is becoming more of a class act with each cheeky guylinered wink.
