New York City native Miles Francis will be playing a hometown show at Brooklyn Bowl this Saturday, November 13.
The artist, who identifies as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, recently announced the release of their new album, Good Man on November 10. Francis shared the title track, “Good Man”, as a teaser for the album, which comes out March 4, 2022.
Think the track sounds like it was inspired by 80s music with a hint of turn-of-the-century pop? You’d be spot on — Francis’ musical inspirations are Prince, David Bowie, and early 2000’s boy bands.
Francis explained the track, saying,
“‘Good Man'” is sung by a man who preaches progressive values, who identifies as ‘one of the good ones’ – yet he fails to recognize his perpetuation of patriarchal behavior in his own life. There are lots of outwardly ‘bad’ men out there – but it’s the ones who claim their ‘good’-ness that can be particularly troublesome and capable of causing real harm.”
