Bringing the country into the city for folk duo India Electric Company's new project

Clad in what can only be described as chequered chef whites, Miles Kane’s performance is memorable and not just for the music.

The Pyramids is easily three times bigger than previous venues where I’ve seen him – a reminder that he has come far in his solo journey.

The former Rascals frontman and co-frontman of The Last Shadow Puppets performs tracks from his two critically-acclaimed albums, The Colour of the Trap and Don’t Forget Who You Are, hastily launching into a medley of fast-paced hits.

The upbeat psychedelic pop synths of Quicksand bring the crowd together and Inhaler has us all in sweaty song.

The 1960s/mod-like sounds of Kane’s distinctive style ring out across the room and he provides a mash-up of Give Up with The Rolling Stones’s Sympathy For The Devil.

He leaves us with Come Closer and as we head down the steps that glorious buzz lingers in our ears.
