Evan Miles meditates on the past in debut EP ‘Burning’

Words: Dylan Murphy

It follows the release of a string of emotive singles from the Waterford producer.

Evan miles has been active in the Irish music scene for a number of years, whether that’s co-founding the event and music collective Anomaly, producing his own tracks or working with other acts, he’s become an important force in the south east’s evolving scene.

Today, he’s shared his first EP Burning which sees him make good on the promise of his excellent string of singles in the past year or so. Inspired by the meditative pulses of Daithi, Four Tet and the soundscapes of Enya, Miles is creating music grounded in mindfulness. Rather than wrestling with his experiences, Miles is establishing a sound that surrenders to discomfort, letting it wash over him.

Speaking on the new project Evan said, “The Burning EP has been something I had thought about a lot over the last year. In the last few years, I can look back and see myself burning bridges whether it be relationships, friendships or just even opportunities for myself. I’ve definitely lived with a bit of regret over certain things but making this EP has made me actually think about these things for more than like 5 seconds. I’d never want to be alone with my thoughts and constantly trying to do stuff to take my mind off, my mind really.”
