NEW ALBUM VIOLENT LIGHT RELEASED 24TH FEBRUARY ON MEMPHIS INDUSTRIES
“a beautifully understated, melodically-rich slice of electronic soul that sounds like someone waking up from a fuzzy dream and seeing things with complete clarity” The Guardian
Milagres have shared ‘IDNYL’, one of the purest pop moments from their new album Violent Light. Premiered by The Guardian, the acronym stands for ‘I Don’t Need Your Love’ and showcases the delicate falsetto of vocalist Kyle Wilson, as well as the deft Peter Gabriel, Talk Talk-esque production talents of the Brooklyn group.
If the last album Glowing Mouth from Brooklyn brooders Milagres was an essay on human frailty, composed in a haze of Vicodin from a hospital bed after a climbing accident left lead vocalist Kyle Wilson incapacitated for months, the follow-up is about living life – a brave, bold fuck-you to mortality that seeps sex from its pores and dazzles in its gossamer alt-pop.
Listen to new song ‘IDNYL’
The only record you’ll hear next year (or any other) to borrow from both Heroes-era Bowie and Southern rap hooligan Waka Flocka Flame (“I love the way his rhythm tracks just prattle on and on without repeating themselves, somehow never sounding overcomplicated” says Wilson), this new full-length release from the band sounds like a trip into another universe, full of trippy analogue synths, manipulated samples, punchy distorted guitars and heavy brass orchestrations.
Now a four piece, Milagres are completed by producer and bass player Fraser McCulloch, keyboard player Chris Brazee and drummer Paul Payabyab.
