When Myles Manley upped sticks and left Sligo for The Big Smoke, he came not to fritter about the outskirts of pop, but to get right inside and fiddle around with the genre. Convention and Myles Manley don’t have much in common, but this is no common-or-garden artist. Having travelled to London and New York, writing songs all the while, he returned to Dublin to record. He plays with backing band The Little People, concocting tunes of peculiarity, striking intelligence and no little immediacy. His bunged-up, nasal mumble of a voice is hard to ignore, as are song titles like ‘I Fuck Your Wife’. Three EPs arrived over the last year or so, spanning folk, rock and electronica, before the 12 most memorable were gathered up as Greatest Hits 2012-2013 (another winning title) as a “sham release for newcomers.” Arresting songwriting, big imagination and promising execution. Our own M and M is on to something.
