Miles Kane released his latest album ‘Coup De Grace’ last year. In a three-star review, NME said: “Kane, for his part, attacks the record with the determination of an artist starting his third major label deal achingly close to making a significant breakthrough. With a crunch-time punch, he throws everything he’s got at the wall. Kane’s ante is upped, but ‘Coup de Grace’ still isn’t quite the killer blow.”

The Big Moon, meanwhile, have been working on the follow-up to their 2017 debut album, ‘Love In The 4th Dimension’.


Frontwoman Juliette Jackson and guitarist Soph Nathan recently spoke to NME about joining the Extinction Rebellion protest. “I just think it’s the only thing that really matters now,” Jackson said. “It’s the planet we all live on. It’s literally the planet. What’s bigger than that? Scientists are saying we have only 12 years left to make a meaningful difference to our carbon emissions, and making small personal changes – while important to do – won’t make enough of a difference.”
