Much of Milagres’ second studio album, Violent Light, draws inspiration from bandleader Kyle Wilson’s home region of northern New Mexico and his grandfather’s involvement with the Manhattan Project. The record’s sound is appropriately grandiose; Perennial Bulb opens with a sea of sparkling and buzzing synths, setting a big, cinematic tone. They remain ambitious but funky with a Prince-esque turn on The Letterbomb. It all ends with the whirlpools of piano and softly exploding crescendos of the rhythmic Another Light. Violent Light Milagres.

One debilitating climbing accident, a name-change, and an inspired second album later, frontman Kyle Wilson and his bandmates are back with the glowing synth bombast of Violent Light. Continuing to mine his personal mythology, much of the album was inspired by Wilson's childhood trips to the deserts of New Mexico and his grandfather's involvement with the Manhattan Project and the development of the hydrogen bomb. Weighty stuff, for sure, but one of the most surprising things about Violent Light is how it balances its heavy conceptual undertones with a sort of sensual, mid-'80s.

Sunburn 10. Another Light Praise for Glowing Mouth: "The band's sound is something like a spiritual experience: lo-fi and heartfelt. With influences ranging from Prince to Peter Gabriel, the band could just as easily be compared to Radiohead, Grizzly Bear, or Bon Iver. Singer Kyle Wilson weaves together his falsetto and lower registers as seamlessly as he always has, but the songs on this album have more of a sense of urgency.

If greater success follows them, treading that line between creativity and audience demand will become harder to do, but for now, Milagres have succeeded in making a unique and ultimately appealing record.

When Brooklyn's Milagres first surfaced in the UK in 2011, the Guardian's New Band of the Day column declared they sounded exactly like Coldplay. There's not a lot Coldplay-esque about their third album though, dominated as it is by distinctly 80s synth textures and tones, and a commitment to big pop hooks. Even when they do venture into Coldplay territory – as on Terrifying Sea – singer and main songwriter Kyle Wilson has a turn of phrase that lifts Violent Light above arena platitudes: "Can you open up my tiny, torpid brain?" he asks. On The Letterbomb his quavering.
