Listen: Milagres - "Sunburn"
Well you certainly can't call the members of Brooklyn experimental pop foursome Milagres unaccommodating. In the off chance that previously released tracks "The Letterbomb" and "Jeweled Cave" haven't gotten you fully onboard with the band's bigger, bolder sound and practically fiending for their upcoming record Violent Light, their latest single "Sunburn" ought to do the trick.
"Sunburn" continues the band's acclimation into the realm of synth pop with a notable twist - while previous offerings aimed for larger than life presentation and downright epic grandeur, "Sunburn" is a much more contained affair. The closest Milagres may get to and out and out ballad on Violent Light, its a considerably less active effort. While I hesitate to use the term stripped down, there's a lightening of the layered load - a rather straightforward mood piece featuring Wilson's vocal caress that never quite loses sight of the necessary momentum needed to keep it afloat.
Milagres' upcoming third full length Violent Light is out February 25th on Kill Rock Stars. You can pre-order it now and catch them on the second leg of their tour this Spring.
