Ian Miles shares Overwhelmed the second single and video.
The track is taken from his debut album Degradation, Death, Decay out via Big Scary Monsters on 15 October 2021.
The new cut is from his forthcoming debut solo along with an accompanying video. Inspired by the performance art of the 70s and Halloween – his debut is more art horror project than album. The record takes cues from the visual legacies of Robert Rauschenberg and Serbian film maker Marina Abramovic whilst musically drawing on bands such as Conor Oberst, Leonard Cohen, R.E.M and The Cure. More on the extended videos in this project can be found on Ian’s website.
Talking about the new single Ian said; “Overwhelmed is for anyone who is in an unescapable toxic place and for those courageous enough to have escaped it.”
“I’ve never really seen this as a solo project because I’ve been writing and recording acoustic music since I was about 15. I low key released some very old songs way before Creeper started and even during,” says Miles about choosing to step out on his own. “I don’t want to be the focus of this record, it’s not about me so I have decided to hide me. I want people to solely focus on the art.”
