Live Review: Miles Kane – Brixton Academy

~ 06/12/2018 ~

Miles Kane, clad in jumpsuit and heels proved to Brixton why he’s the man of the moment.

Beginning the evening with ‘Silverscreen’ from his latest release ‘Coup de Grace’, Kane prowled the stage like a lion ready to pounce on its prey and it didn’t take long for that pounce to happen, the second song in fact. As soon as the riff to that instantly recognisable ‘Inhaler’ kicked in, Kane equalled the excitement of his onlookers below.

Halloween this year marked the release of Kane’s spooky ‘LA Five Four (309)’, this track allowed the main man to be released from the shackles of his guitar, free to get into the faces of the front row.

The epic set managed to provide indie-anthems, sing-a-longs and even a cover of Donna Summer‘s disco-infused ‘Hot Stuff’. There aren’t many artists currently around (or ever) that can go from such extremities with ease but Kane confidently pulls it of in style.

Bowing out with ‘Come Closer’, a fan favourite from his debut album, the crowd are left in awe of the showman. As the thousands pour out into the streets of London and the Underground, chants of the final song continue to echo… Not bad for a Thursday night.
