Myles Morgan’s influences are vast. On the face of it you could presume he was another gunslinger with a guitar, but ‘Ikywc’ contains a whole breadth of styles. The five-minute track is underpinned by a flute and saxophone jazz symphony while Myles’ vocals are Jeff Buckley singing Jamie T, coming to terms with the fact that his lover is not going to come over (Ikywc means I Knew You Wasn’t Coming, btw).
In the same vein as artists like Jack Penate, Morgan’s style steps up with each release. Ikywc is his fourth single – 2017’s debut Circles showcased a Sufjan Stevens sound, Fool took a lo-fi minimal turn, Left Here was drenched in layers of Editors guitar. The jazz-indie of Ikywc is further forward momentum and we cannot wait to hear what the London singer will come up with next.
