about

Extended Play was officially released on February 5 2017 and delivers a collision of New Wave chamber pop, retro rock and roots origins as a backdrop to a dissection of social norms.

Miles Recommends is the Australian singer-songwriting and music production duo of Des Atkinson and Lou Cadell, who in a life full of contradictions, like to ponder some of the bigger questions.

Lead singles 'Darkness' and 'Crazy House' are enjoying solid airplay across Australian, American and Canadian radio stations including Pbs FM, 2MCR 100.3FM, 4ZZZ, 96.5 Inner FM, 97.9 Valley FM, Voice of the Avon 101.3 FM, C.I.V.L. Radio 101.7FM, and IndieCast Network.

Track 'Just Wanted You' was also voted by listeners of Indie Rock Cafe (USA) into the Top 10 releases of February 2017, with their EP voted into Radio Indie Alliance (USA) Top 10 and 4ZZZ Top 20 releases of March 2017!

But who is Miles?

A long, long time ago, people ventured into video stores for the latest and greatest films. Back then it wasn’t uncommon for those working in these stores to make suggestions to those who weren’t looking for the ordinary. Though we never knew him outside of those four walls, a guy named Miles was our go-to dude for recommending what we should take home and we’ll be darned if he didn’t always choose things that made us happy!

Yes friends, it was a simpler time. And sadly, we may never know what Miles is recommending today. But his spirit (and name) lives on through the magic of our sweet, sweet music.

Miles Recommends releases music under their independent production label Flapjack Industry Records and are currently working on their LP due out mid 2017.

Track Name: Crazy House
There's a certain type of folk who tie a yolk, called credibility
Beholden to a form so nice and warm, called insecurity
But there's a special place, a friendly space, waiting for you
Just spend a moment there without a care, be impromptu

If I could have my choice I would rejoice, at the Crazy House
Go take a little spin on freedoms whim, at the Crazy House

There's a certain type of joy in being coy, called anonymity
But be careful where there's fear in there, called disparity
Or like a flock of gulls just let your souls, peck on celebrity
We're such a scattered form inside a mould, our identity

If I could have my choice I would rejoice, at the Crazy House
Go take a little spin on freedoms whim, at the Crazy House
Every now and then you meet a friend, at the Crazy House
A sense in reservation preservation, at the Crazy House
If I could have my choice I would rejoice, at the Crazy House
Yeah the people stare, the people glare, not at the Crazy House

If I could have my choice I would rejoice, at the Crazy House
Go take a little spin on freedoms whim, at the Crazy House
If I could have my choice I would rejoice, at the Crazy House
But there's uncertain cure in being pure, at the Crazy House
Track Name: Burn Through
All around me are so certain
Familiar space in which to hide
Never doubting for a moment
Change that will divide

Oh life, it's crazy they say
Many different roads, but most all go the same way

But I won't be afraid
To live my life by my plan
No I won't look away
I'll keep watching, I'll see right through

As we turn forever yearning
Some for power, some for fame
Those for love forever learning
The price of being tame
Oh life, it's crazy they say
Many different roads, but most all go the same way

But I won't be afraid
To live my life by my plan
No I won't look away
I'll keep watching, I'll see right through

No I won't
Ooohhhh

No I won't be afraid
To live my life by my plan
No I won't look away
I'll keep watching, I'll see right through

Ooohhhhh, no I won't, I won't be afraid
Ooohhhhh, no I won't, 'cause I'm burning I'm burning through
Track Name: Darkness
This Darkness it spreads all around me, no warmth no light
And it's thick as my pulse slowly counting, the time go by
Where is the sun? I wait for you but you never come

This Darkness it spreads all around me, no warmth no light
And it's thick as my pulse slowly counting, the time go by
Where is the sun? I wait for you but you never come

Woohoohoo, woohoohooo
Woohoohoo, woohoohooo

So I sit here and write on my list, the pros and cons
And I know I've a lot to be grateful for, but I'm still numb
There is no sun, I wait for you but you never come!

Woohoohoo, woohoohooo
Woohoohoo, woohoohooo

Woohoohoo, woohoohooo
Woohoohoo, woohoohooo
Track Name: Just Wanted You
We met, at an age when you were chasing stars
You had an, eye for fashion and those fancy bars
Still in between, I found the spark

Head of candy and those princess dreams
Friends who, only used you for their selfish means
Still in between, I found the spark

Insert a love just so that you can make a start
This cardboard life where everyone just plays a part

You wanted to
Just wanted to
But I wanted you

Heart so frail but ego not so weak
Why would you, want secure before sincere with me?
When in between, we find the spark

Dreams aside the wind can embrace
This life is, now for living it's not a race
When in between, we find the spark

Insert a love just so that you can make a start
This cardboard life where everyone just plays a part

You wanted to
Just wanted to
But I wanted you
Just wanted you

Insert a love just so that you can make a start
This cardboard life where everyone just plays a part

You wanted to
Just wanted to
But I wanted you
Just wanted you
Just wanted you
Just wanted you
Track Name: Lonely People
Mmmmm mmmmmm
oh ohhhhh...

Chained to my direction
drowning in my head
I know, something's wrong but I'm
too busy to contend

The world once was so large
but now it seems so small
My neighbours are close to me
but we're not friends at all!

We're all Lonely People
we look for answers above
We're all Lonely People

Oooh ooohhh...
oooooohh...
oooohhooohhh...

My house, well it's so large
but my heart is so small
I have, many things but I
I just want more and more!

We're all Lonely People
we look for answers above
You know...
We're all Lonely People

Oooh ooohhh...
oooooohh...
you know we are...

My head, well it's so large
but my mind's just so damn small
I say, many thing's but I'm
not really thinking at all

La da da da dah
la da da da dah
la da da da dah...
Not thinking at all

La da da da dah
la da da da dah
la da da da dah...
Not thinking at all!

We're all Lonely People
we look for answers above
You know...
We're all Lonely People
Do what we can for love...
