Birmingham native and upcoming pop sensation Genevieve Miles has been described by Words for Music as a “staple of the indie scene”, gaining support from BBC Radio, including a set at BBC Introducing Live 2019 in London and their joint showcase with Birmingham Music Awards in February 2020. A down-to-earth Brummy chick and an incredibly talented songwriter, Miles has captured the hearts of her ever-growing fanbase with her unique brand of alt-pop and sparkling vocals.
Back with a brand new track, Genevieve Miles looks on the bright side in her latest single, ‘Storm Before’, produced by Carlos de los Santos. An honest and introspective offering, this track dissects the journey towards healing and inner-peace, over gentle 80s guitar riffs and dreamy, psychedelic synths.
By adopting a slightly new sound palette with ‘Storm Before’, we see Miles display an increased maturity in her songwriting, complimented by the softly soulful instrumental comprised of soft jazz influences and saxophone melodies, set against a finely-tuned backdrop of sad girl synth-pop.
Speaking on her release, Genevieve Miles shares:
“This song is a special one, it really sounds like my soul. First off, it’s a love song, but looking back at it now I’m also talking about the long cyclical process of healing. “This rain could not compare to the storm that came before last summer”: healing and growth never end and when pain randomly comes up again, even though it’s hard each time, maybe it’s a little different, a little better than the time before, cause you’ve learnt so much since then, you have so many new tools to work with and look after yourself.”Genevieve Miles
