(That girl is…) Misery – Mike Hughes

Why is this tune worth chasing?

Currently touring with Miles Kane (and even sharing a couple of band members), Mike Hughes has a reputation that’s growing fast, so it’s worth picking him up before everyone knows who he is.

‘(That Girl Is…) Misery’ is an acoustic, Spanish/flamenco tinged folk track that opens light, before a huge, stompy rhythm comes in and takes over. It’s a track which is very much in the current zeitgest – from the reverb happy vocal production to the offbeat folk nature. Hughes himself describes it as ‘Apocalyptic Gospel Blues’, and it’s as fitting a description as any.
