Part-psychedelic rock, part-post punk lies this new tune from Miles Monroe “Roll Around Kyoto.” Combining flowing, sometimes intense lyrics with a raw vocal delivery and an en fuego blazing electric guitar work, Miles toes the line between ever-shifting reality and vivid fantasy.
The lo-fi vocals also really do the track some justice. And, can we just talk about The Doors-inspired guitar solo about 2 minutes in?
It might partly be that I’m craving time in Japan (never been) or that this tune has so many of my favorite rock influences packed into it, but “Roll Around Kyoto” makes me want to get out my skateboard, roll around the neighborhood, and come back and buy a ticket to Kyoto.
See if you feel the same.
