This Song: Miles Francis

By: Elizabeth McQueen

Miles Francis, who has played with Antibalas and backed up Arcade Fire’s Will Butler, just released his first solo EP Swimmers along with a companion visual album directed by Charles Billot.  Listen as he describes how two very different songs —  Prince’s “Let’s Pretend We’re Married” and The Beach Boys “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on My Shoulder)”– showed him how music can convey a range 0f feelings, and helped serve as a template for his own work.
