Blending dreamy, atmospheric noise pop with Brian Wilson-style psychedelia, Miracle Fortress formed in 2005 as the solo project of Think About Life's Graham Van Pelt.
He self-released Miracle Fortress' first EP, Watery Grave, that year, and went on to release his debut full-length, Five Roses, two years later. Adam Waito (Telefauna), Jessie Stein (SS Cardiac), and Jordan Robson-Cramer rounded out the lineup for the project's live show. With the fully constituted ensemble in tow, Van Pelt and Miracle Fortress released the shoegaze-influenced Was I the Wave? in 2011. ~ Margaret Reges, Rovi
