Miloe Releases “gaps”
‘gaps’ EP Out 16th September via Loma Vista Recordings
Minneapolis by way of Kinshasa singer-songwriter and guitarist Miloe has released the title track off his forthcoming EP, gaps, out 16th September via Loma Vista Recordings. “gaps” is an addictive and sonically playful song about music allowing us to enter a flow state that separates us from our anxieties. The EP is a succinct collection of deftly-produced indie-pop layered with Afrobeats, making Miloe a poetic voice for the young African diaspora.
“gaps” follows singles “make ur way” ft. 80purppp and “floating” that was accompanied by a trippy video filmed in The Tunnel of Terror in Minnesota. Both tracks were preceded by singles “elastic” and hit single “Winona” that was later reimagined featuring Jamila Woods and Vagabon.
Miloe constructs this impressionable and at times volatile atmosphere, reflecting this essential vibe that alters the listeners’ mood. This easy, accessible, and rich arrangement flows with such ease and provides this feel-good, ethereal surge, whilst affection oozes from the charming vocal notes and lyrics throughout. Notably, the fluctuating bass and complex depth being pushed through the atmopshere adds to the addictive qualities of this visceral creation, whilst the chrous-driven guitar tone sparks this uplifting touch.
Miloe is the musical project of Bob Kabeya, a 21-year old artist based in Minneapolis. Growing up in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the sonic imprint of Miloe’s days there stayed palpable when his family made the 7000 mile journey to Minneapolis to join their father, who had been granted asylum three years prior. Suddenly dropped into the land of such punk legacies as Husker Dü, The Replacements, and Soul Asylum and Prince, Bobby’s musical destiny had perhaps unwittingly been cut out for him. While working his way through the Twin Cities’ basement show circuit, Kabeya chipped away at Miloe’s debut EP, Greenhouse. The project showcased a sunnier, pop-oriented side to Miloe.
