Kristin Gallegos x So It Goes: Miles Garber

Is anyone just a model anymore? Miles Garber (@milesgarber) certainly isn't. Although the genetically blessed Californian has become a pretty familiar face in the modeling industry over the last several years, he's recently broken into something new. Swimsuit Issue, the band that Miles started with musician friend Dave Gagliardi released their first music video last month. Although the NYC band's musical roots rest in punk music, Swimsuit Issue's sound has been likened to both Beck and Jeff Buckley. Their soft, hazy single Break may be a far cry from the kind of music the duo grew up on but we're not complaining.
