September 13 marks the release of Glowing Mouth , the new album from Brooklyn’s Milagres out on Kill Rock Stars.
The musical scope of Milagres sophomore album is big and due to the piano-based melodies and soaring falsettos, early press has compared the band to artists as diverse as Grizzly Bear and Prince , demonstrating the wide breadth of Milagres material. The first single, “Glowing Mouth”, is a slow-burner made for dancing close on a hot summer night, whereas “Here To Stay” has a keyboard hook that won’t let you sleep. Kyle Wilson has a knack for writing dreamy story songs that also pack a punch in both chorus and melody. Songs like “Gentle Beast” and “Gone” suck you in and then haunt you for days afterwards – this is an album that stays with you.
Watch their video “Here to Stay”, a fun combination of claymation and television noir.
