Miles Kane

Miles Kane – Electric Ballroom, Camden

Miles Kane, a true staple in British indie-rock music. Miles finished his tour in the capital this weekend with two nights at Camden’s Electric Ballroom, selling out the Friday night and near capacity on the Saturday. After supporting Arctic Monkeys in Ireland, the intimate gigs, the hugely popular record store meet and greets, this tour has allowed Miles to showcase his 5th studio album ‘One Man Band’ (which reached number 5 in the Official UK Album Charts).

The night started off with a queue that meandered down the street and wrapped itself around the building, which was full of cold, rain soaked, eager fans waiting to see such the legend in a small venue. Alex Spencer, a young up and coming musician, accompanied by his band took to the stage and blew everyone away with his charisma and extremely talented vocals. I’d definitely earmark Alex as one to look out for in the future years.

Next up were The Royston Club, after the release of their debut album (‘Shaking Hips and Crashing Cars’) and their headline UK tour, they had been supporting Miles on this tour from the very beginning. The perfect band to get the crowd warmed up and ready to dance every step of the way. They’ve built up quite a following since their first singles released in 2019 and I think they’ve definitely gained more popularity with this tour under their belt with Miles. A young, fresh, talented bunch of lads giving indie fans exactly what they want.

Then it was time. Miles Kane and his band took the stage, entering almost like a fight night boxing walk out with the fans screaming and chanting from start to end. Miles picked up his classic Gibson guitar and kicked off with a single from the new album, ‘Troubled Son’. His stage presence is almost god like in my opinion, with such grace and mesmerising vocals I speak for everyone in that venue when I say we were all hooked and so fully engaged in the show.

Miles played a set covering all eras and years throughout his discography from songs such as ‘First Of My Kind’, ‘Colour Of The Trap’, ‘Coup De Grace’ and he also debuted a new song, ‘Heal’ into the tour from the recent album.

The man from Birkenhead had the crowd in the palm of his hand, leaving them wanting more, as they sang back to him as he walked off stage! Miles returned and duly obliged, ended the night with ‘Don’t Forget Who You Are’, a classic and fan favourite!

In true rock and roll fashion, the man himself came outside to say hello after the gig, to take pictures and sign items for the fans who had been waiting patiently at the back of the venue. Miles spent around 10 minutes with everyone and made memories that will live long in the memory for those there. Take a bow, Mr Miles Kane.

The Japanese House – Roundhouse, London

After the release of their second EP ‘In the End it Always Does’ last year, which received tremendous reception, Amber Bain and co. have continued to grasp the attention of world-wide music-lovers. The bands distinct blend of a softening, indie-rock sonic has reinforced their status in the landscape, and testament to their continued success, they’re embarking on their biggest tour to date. After stints of supporting runs with fellow Dirty Hit record labellers The 1975, including an enormous sell-out show at Finsbury Park last July, selling out one of London's most remarkable venues is a positive sign of their growing popularity.

Pleasure Inc. – Voodoo Daddy’s Showroom

A sea of mullets and cigarette smoke greeted us as we arrived at the venue on a very rainy Saturday night. This, in my opinion, was a sure sign of a great show. In the heart of Norwich, Voodoo Daddy's is an eccentric dive bar nestled among various shops cafes and bars, much like the trinkets on the shelf inside the restaurant. The venue's top level was crowded, and my friend and I had trouble locating the door to "the showroom".
