Montreal-based musician and producer Miracle Fortress (aka Graham Van Pelt) has unveiled a new video for the song "Possession", the first in the series of the bonus singles he has offered for free this year.
"Director Tim Kelly has painted a stirring portrait of a young and real Montreal family on the verge of a new life, lovingly framed in an austere panorama of the city itself," says Van Pelt of the video, "In my opinion he's nailed the song, its feel and intention perfectly." "Possession" is part of the unique content Miracle Fortress has been offering, followed by two original tracks, "Seabird" and "Tropic of Canada from a collection of unreleased material Van Pelt wrote simultaneously while writing his sophomore album, Was I the Wave?
