Miles Kane has come back with another piano and brass fiesta, a bold, jaunty, northern soul single about beach dates and nervously innocent love, this time a duet – ‘Nothing’s Ever Gonna Be Good Enough’, with Corinne Bailey Rae. On paper, the ‘Put Your Records On’ R&B songstress may not be an obvious feature for one of indie music’s current golden boys but the soul slant of Kanes’ handiwork ensures this is a confident match.
If The Last Shadow Puppets ditched the irony and the need to be overtly credible then this is the kind of record they would put out. Thankfully, the self-assured frontman uses his solo career to chuck out the rulebook and bash out massive hits like this.
The video and single are both out today. You can see the new video, set on both the seaside and in a working men’s club, below:
