A prominent British indie leader. Half The Last Shadow Puppets. A friend of Alex Turner, Jamie T and Paul Weller. It's all about Miles Kane, who will come to Kyiv to present the record Coup De Grace!
Strictly speaking, this is not the first visit of Miles to Ukraine: he has already performed at the festival in Gribovka. But it was so long ago that it was not true. Here you have the data on which to catch the British dude. Date - June 21st. Place - Green Theater.
Coup De Grace is Kane's third studio director, who came out last year and became his first solo work in five years. Miles began work on Coup De Grace immediately after the album Don't Forget Who You Are (2013), but it didn’t work. “Musicians have such moments after the tours. Easy sadness. But I just trampled. I could neither play the guitar nor sing. For some reason, my profession scared me and the fact that I was afraid of it, ”says Kane. He honestly tried, but was distracted by The Last Shadow Puppets, then the tribute group in honor of The Beatles with Matt Bellamy from Muse. But in the end he got together and recorded an album in two weeks in Los Angeles.
Coup De Grace translates from French as "the final explosion." So is the reception of the beloved wrestler Kane, Finn Balor. Los Angeles, Wrestling, and Lana Del Rey, who co-authored Loaded, are the only three American things on this album. Everything else - from meaning to sound - is British.
Miles says that he wanted to move away from the theatricality of The Last Shadow Puppets and return to the roots, namely, to the good old indie straight from the garage. And it was the right decision. Coup De Grace became one of the best British rock albums in 2018. Mostly lyrical. Mostly very dancing. Mostly hard and sharp. Coup De Grace has absorbed all the energy that has been produced by different music in Britain over the past fifty years. The result is a half-hour clot of energy that knocks out strikes, just like in bowling.
You don't want to miss that, right?
