Since their 2014 release, producer and multi-instrumentalist Fraser McCulloch has focused on production and recording for NYC artists and agencies, while songwriter and vocalist Kyle Wilson has composed for multiple award winning films. Eventually the itch to create their own songs returned, and Milagres soon found themselves holed up in the cavernous choir loft of Greenpoint’s Park Church Co-op, chipping away at an enormous new body of work. Their previous songwriter and producer roles blurred as the pair began to break down old band boundaries and work on the new record as a duo.
After 2014’s Violent Light’s deliberately challenging and dark approach, the new music is striking evidence of McCulloch and Wilson's evolution toward something brighter and more direct. From a band whose live performance was called, “perfection” by KEXP’s John Richards, and whose recordings have been included in NPR’s best songs of the year list, more greatness is in short order.
