High Hopes: White Miles – Pole dancing. Broken noses. Revenge.

"Dirty pole-dace stoner blues-rock" duo from Austria. All swagger, no messing.

Traditionally, it falls to the rock hack to invent tenuous sub-genres of music. But White Miles are ready with a suggestion. “We’re dirty pole-dance stoner blues-rock,” says their drummer Hansjörg ‘Lofi’ Loferer. “We like pole dancing, blues and rock. So we thought, these are our influences, and this is what our music will be called.”

“Don’t you like pole-dancing too?” asks livewire singer and guitarist Medina Rekic. “It’s wonderful.”

White Miles are an odd couple in the grand tradition. “Lofi is full of energy on stage, and when he gets drunk he gets funny too,” says Rekic. “But during the day he’s slow. He sleeps a lot.”
