Miles: Rust Belt
Although Brooklyn quartet MILES’ current sound is best described as melodic alternative music, the bands’ very name stands as an obvious and undeniable reminder of a treasured jazz past. However, there is more meaning to this moniker than just its obvious connection with an iconic trumpeter. “When we were in college, Ben and I played with other musicians at different colleges,” recalls guitarist/vocalist Marc Plotkin. “We were traveling a lot, so people said the name had more to do with distance.”
Artistic restlessness, is addressed incisively with “Rust Belt”, today’s featured single from their Expose EP.
