TOTW: ‘Storm Before’ – Genevieve Miles

Birmingham-based indie-pop star, Genevieve Miles has been recently depicted as the “sunny indie queen” by BBC Introducing. Releasing her new track ‘Storm Before’ today, she has finely-tuned the balance between sad girl synth-pop and 80s riffs to take her own unique spin on alternative pop.

Produced by Carlos de los Santos (Neon Islands, Simple Fiction), the softly delivered vocals show similarity to Lenka in their delicate approach. It’s a perfect example of soft alt-pop in its purest form, and Genevieve is an infections character.

“This song is a special one, it really sounds like my soul. First off, it’s a love song, but looking back at it now, I’m also talking about the long cyclical process of healing. “This rain could not compare to the storm that came before last summer”: healing and growth never end and when pain randomly comes up again, even though it’s hard each time, maybe it’s a little different, a little better than the time before, ‘cause you’ve learnt so much since then, you have so many new tools to work with and look after yourself.”

Her sparkling energy and authentic polish are what makes Genevieve a real one to watch on the up-and-coming music scene.
