It’s been a long long time since I’ve heard a Miles Kane track. I think the last recording by him I heard was his cover of “A Girl Like You”…coincidentally, one of the first things ever posted on Sirens of Decay.
I’ve always loved Miles’ voice (and he shares the same name as my oldest child, that doesn’t hurt), but I’ve always been a bit perplexed by a lot of his music. I neglected his solo album Colour of the Trap, having been most familiar with him from The Last Shadow Puppets and his band The Rascals. I had a copy of Rascalize and I always felt like it was missing something to make the masses grab onto it the way they did The Last Shadow Puppets and Arctic Monkeys.
“Don’t Forget Who You Are” continues on in that same vein. While catchier than previous efforts by Kane, I don’t think it’ll be quite the earworm I’d hope for in regards to the general public. With the release of this newest track, I’m beginning to suspect he probably doesn’t give a big fluff about such things and just makes precisely what he wants to hear, which is fine by me. I enjoy it either way. It’s an enjoyable track and I’m excited to hear the album.
You can pre-order his upcoming album Don’t Forget Who You Are right here.
