Conquer your winter despair with Miles Francis’s “Take It”​

The Manhattan artist is readying his debut EP, Swimmers.

January 10, 2018

It's been brutally cold this past week, enough to make anyone hibernate in bed. Remedy that with Miles Francis's "Take It," a twitchy little electronic pop song from the Manhattan artist. Francis has worked as a studio musician for folks like Mark Ronson and Sharon Jones, and now he's debuting some music of his own. In a clip for this sparkly song, off his debut EP Swimmers (due out on February 2), dancer Lukasz Zieba effectively communicates the song's torn nature.


In an email to The FADER, Miles Francis said that the song is about being stuck in the middle of all things. "It's a song about being OK and not OK, all the time," he said. "Perseverance mixed with false hope."
