And now comes Swimmers. The 5-song EP, replete with meticulous and supremely catchy songs, is a brilliant introduction to an exciting new voice in left-field pop. Nothing is looped and there’s no computer magic filling in missing lines; Swimmers is pop music with an edge. It portrays a particular period in a young person’s life, written in the back of a tour van and various hotel rooms, and then recorded by Miles alone in his basement studio. “These five songs captured a raw time for me, when life seemed to be coming to a head. I made an effort not to touch or edit them too much once I had recorded them. I wanted to keep that intimacy in there,” he says. Indeed, these are songs from someone who knows what he wants to say, how to say it, and perhaps most importantly, how to keep you listening. And you’ll definitely want to keep listening.
