"…combines a David Bowie-like theatricality with a sprawling prog groove." – SPIN
" ...evokes classic, synth-steered modern rock and highlights frontman Kyle Wilson's hypnotic voice." – Rolling Stone
“The group's dynamic arrangements and instrumentation provide the perfect bed for singer-songwriter Kyle Wilson's shape-shifting voice…” – NPR

Brooklyn indie rock quartet Milagres today release their sophomore full-length album, Violent Light, via Kill Rock Stars in the US (out yesterday via Memphis Industries in the UK). The follow-up to their 2011 debut Glowing MouthLP, Violent Light finds the band channeling influences as diverse as Al Green, Peter Gabriel & Kate Bush, and introduces a darker, harder sound for the group.
Milagres (Kyle Wilson, Fraser McCulloch, Chris Brazee & Paul Payabyab) fill Violent Light with richness and delicacy. LP cut “IDNYL” is “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). Give “IDNYL” a listen HERE, and we encourage you to post & share!
The band previously unveiled album cut “The Letterbomb,” which combines a “David Bowie-like theatricality with a sprawling prog groove” (SPIN), single “Jeweled Cave,” a psych-pop number that immediately bursts open with bouncing synths & a driving bassline, and “Sunburn,” a poignant, bittersweet track that reflects the album’s diversity- ranging across styles from dream pop to funky classic rock.  
Milagres are taking to the road on a full US tour in support of the record, including shows at the Savannah Stopover Music FestivalSXSW & a homecoming celebration at the Bowery Ballroom! Full dates follow below:
