TRACK: ‘Love Supreme’ – MilesExperience

The first time I heard MilesExperience was just a few hours ago. It was their track, Love Supreme, which was circulating my newsfeed, that first caught my attention. At first impression, it has the makings of a Jimi Hendrix Experience and John Coltrane-inspired song – one that is definitely not oddly timed in a rather chilly night. Now that I think of it, the name of their band might have been a portmanteau of the late great Jazz master, Miles Davis, and Jimi Hendrix’s band, Jimi Hendrix Experience, which, if it does, explains a great deal. “Love Supreme” is a collection of sharp contrasts: bold yet endearing, musky yet sweet, and at times, shows reservations and uncertainties. “I don’t know how to tell you the truth / I don’t even know how I fell in love with you,” and yet its melody is self-assured, dripping with suave, even. It’s like saying “no,” but the body says otherwise. Arguably, the best section belongs to the guitar solo in the second half. It’s as if if you’re still having doubts of how good of a song this is, then that part should have closed the deal.
