Miracle Fortress is the one-man project of Montreal native Graham Van Pelt, the ginger ninja of indie-meets-electro. With the live looping skills of Andrew Bird and Owen Pallett, his performances impressively compliment his ability to craft these songs in the first place. Miracle Fortress is jam-packed with lighthearted major-key melodies, layers of clean catchy guitars, understated drum beats and hand claps, ear-catching field samples, and ethereal keyboards.
His latest releases “Five Roses” and “Was I The Wave?”, the former probably being a better starting point, are both solid, enjoyable listens from start to finish.
Favourite track: Raw Spectacle (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvkKmrpk-ak)… his most epic and triumphant work to date.
