Miracles do happen, you know. In fact, one will be taking place next Tuesday 15.05.12 @ Exil, ZH, when Young Magic (US) + Milagres (US) (what a beautiful name, Portuguese for miracle, I believe) conjure up a night of long, lingeringly lovely indie rock/pop with a touch of ethereal, psychedelic soul.
Young Magic (Aussies Isaac Emmanuel and Michael Italia & Indonesian Melati Melay) formed as a result of three young vagabonds travelling the world and soaking up musical influences, eventually ending up in NYC to put together the band. Milagres was the product of serious injury – perhaps the miracle after which the band is named? – when main man Kyle Wilson severely injured his back in 2009 while rock climbing. While flat on his back convalescing, Wilson found a renewed passion for music. Upon recovery, he and the remaining members of Milagres put together their current album Glowing Mouth in NYC.
Young Magic, ‘Sparkly’:
Ok peeps, I’ve got 2×2 tix to give away to some lucky punters in need of a miracle. Just answer me this:
What does the name Milagres mean in Portuguese?
