Miracles throw their bodies into nature’s cycle of collapse and renewal. Dirty bass, overdriven keyboards, sparse vocals and maniac drums try to compete with the crash and clatter of human fortunes and failures.
After ten plus years of periodic collaboration on poetry, art and music projects, Adam Stolorow (vocals, keyboards) and Baxter Holland (bass) arrived in Brooklyn by way of late 90’s Providence and the requisite diet of utopian thinking and freak flag waving. What started in Chicago as an experimental ripple of drums, cheap keyboards and onstage loops between Stolorow and drummer Matthew Berland in 2004 became a focused vibrational wave by the time it reached the coast. Increasingly, the Miracles sound threatens to burst living through the brick and asphalt of the metropolis.
With the addition of Chicago transplant Gabriel Fowler on drums in 2006, the re-formed trio went almost immediately into New York’s legendary and now defunct Funcity studio to record “Pioneers” with producer Wharton Tiers (Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore, Unrest), which the band self-released as a limited edition silkscreened 12” in 2007. The Funcity session was followed by visits to Brooklyn’s Civil Defense studio, where the band recorded Colony Collapse (Creative Capitalism) with Jeremy Scott in 2007 and 2008. Fowler left the band in 2008 to pursue other projects and Amanda Huron (Vertebrates, DC) rotated into the mix, writing, touring and recording the Ovum EP (Creative Capitalism 2010). Drummer Chris Carson joined the band in late 2009.
Miracles work in skyscrapers but worship like beasts.
