Genevieve Miles is back with a soul-stirring single, "Tough Love," following her triumphant UK tour debut.
A rich tapestry of emotions, weaving the innocence of first love with the wisdom of life's trials, Miles' ethereal vocals glide seamlessly over a backdrop infused with pop, dance, and reggae influences. It's a sonic journey that's uniquely hers.
Miles delves into the song's alternative breakup narrative, exploring the pain of letting go and the brutal honesty of lost love in one's youth. It's a reflection on growth through heartbreak, a moment of bittersweet clarity, drawing inspiration from eclectic sources, from Lorde's string arrangements to George Harrison's acoustic guitar sounds and 80s synths. Miles' roots in the folk circuit of Oxfordshire lend her music a soothing depth.
Genevieve Miles' ability to blend funk, dance, and psychedelic pop sets her apart, echoing the likes of Parcels, Talking Heads, and Khruangbin. Her journey from Oxfordshire's folk scene to Birmingham shaped her innovative take on alternative pop. Notably, her previous single 'Good' garnered over a million views after featuring in a Hyundai advert in 2022. With a string of festival appearances and a forthcoming EP, Miles' star continues to rise and her live shows exude raw emotion and energy.
