Biography

Some naysayers were too quick to mock the title of the previous album from Miles Kane, a citizen of Her Royal Majesty who has made the switch to Californian sunshine – because this friend of Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner (the pair were the powerhouse behind The Last Shadow Puppets) is far from being felled by a ‘Coup de Grace’. The proof comes in the shape of his fourth solo album, released last January, where the artist remembered that he truly is a distinguished member of that incredible lineage of British songwriters – from Ray Davies to Noel Gallagher via Paul Weller. With ‘Change the Show’, he juggles soul and vintage pop to elegantly revive the all-conquering UK of the 1960s. Beneath the Europavox sun, we think that Kane will really set things alight.
