Single Review – Miles Kane – Better Than That

‘Better Than That’ which is out in October, is another single off Miles’ second album Don’t Forget Who You Are and it see’s him at his best. Shovelling instant hooks and melodies with energetic vocals down our throats. The 60’s pop rock bass plays a starring roll with the core hook of the song and everything else works off it. Mile’s rapid build up of vocals leads up to chorus easily while the song keeps plugging away with the interchanging riffs kicking up the rhythm to another gear while the organ sits in the background; holding the other elements as one with it’s subtle wash of sound. The song is not miraculous or out of the blue at all but it’s filled with a lot of tried and tested methods which are pretty much failsafe and when it’s coupled with the swagger and style that Miles has then it’s always going to work in one way or another.
