Miles Kane

Inspired by the classic British guitar pop of The Beatles and The Kinks and the grandiose crooning of Scott Walker and Jacques Brel, Miles Kane's brand of indie rock comes strutting with the mod swagger of Carnaby Street, London circa 1965. First coming to attention in the mid-2000s when his band The Little Flames were part of a vibrant scene in Liverpool alongside the likes of The Coral and The Zutons, Kane fronted indie also-rans The Rascals before teaming up with good friend Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) to form the chamber pop-inspired The Last Shadow Puppets. Full of retro soul and jangling, atmospheric pop, his debut solo album Colour Of The Trap (2011) reached Number 11 in the UK charts and featured appearances from Noel Gallagher, Gruff Rhys and French actress Clemence Poesy. A prolific songwriter with an insatiable love of music, Kane embraces the retro styles and sounds of the 1960s, while crafting his own sharp-tongued tributes to the era.
