Though the creative nucleus of the Fresh & Onlys consists of frontman Tim Cohen and bassist Shayde Sartin, guitarist Wymond Miles is an equally valuable component of the band. Of course he is: It's not like he's a second-chair French horn player for Arcade Fire, he's the lead guitarist of a relatively straightforward garage-rock quartet. Aside from being 25% of the band, his work is integral to the group's success: It's difficult imagining what "Grey-Eyed Girls" would sound like without his rippling, jangly leads or "August in My Mind" and "Waterfall" minus his Morricone-in-a-punk-basement fretwork.
