B.Miles grooves with swagger on the single One Trick Pony. Pulling from the tippy top depths of her “head voice”, then alternating back to her vintage bellow, it’s as if to push the concept that is One Trick Pony.
A sultry conceptual hit, the track is packed with flavorful style. As if she’s paired two parallel sentiments together, the contrast is elegant and only lifts her creative appeal. With urban attitude and subtle psych sonic dressing, it’s as if Mac Demarco produced a record for Remi Wolf.
The comparison is only offered to give you some place mark heading in, B.Miles is really doing something all her own, and should appeal to indie pop and psych pop fans alike.
