Miles Kane is best known as the former frontman of indie rock band The Rascals and, along with Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys, the co-frontman of The Last Shadow Puppets.

“Come Closer” is the second single from his debut solo album “Colour of The Trap”. Apparently inspired by John Lennon Kane has described the song as being “a good first proper single, because it has all the elements. A bit sexy, sleazy, with cool guitar”.

I wasn’t keen to listen to this track, knowing someone artistically associates with the Arctic Monkeys sets off a few warning bells, but after doing so I can’t help but agree with what Miles Kane said. While it isn’t the best song in the world “Come Closer” has a funky chorus that sits atop a very cool rock sound.

Verdict; Stay away from Alex Turner Miles, you’re better than that.
