The Gent’s Song of the Week: Under Light Symphonies
‘Under Light Symphonies’ by Remi Miles
Another week, another gentlemanly track that will likely be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. This week features Remi Miles, a Virginian singer/songwriter that is difficult to categorise in terms of his genre. If we had to try and put him in a box, it would have to be upbeat indie pop, but that simply would not be doing the young man justice. Miles travelled across the pond to Brighton so he could submerge himself with the bohemian lifestyle and creative atmosphere that Brighton offers and has fully embraced aspects of classic British fashion, especially the mod styles of the 60’s and 70’s.
Whilst the style may scream 60’s mod – and from the looks of his tumblr, it is pretty clear the 60s heavily influence his look – his music is something else entirely. Think upbeat, catchy pop from the 80s and early 90s. Under Light Symphonies is light and breezy, with a relaxed beat and Miles’ soft, melodic voice being the stand out of this track. Perfect easy listening for a Tuesday afternoon if we do say so ourselves. The catchy hook will more than likely have you humming or whistling this in the office unintentionally.
Original and unique, this chilled and upbeat song is sure to bring a smile to your face this Tuesday and is style of pop music we are more than happy to get on board with. A gentlemanly tip, we would urge you to remember Remi Miles’ name for the future; we have a feeling he will be big.
