Miracle Fortress… A minor obsession



Since catching Montreal indie dream-popsters supporting Final Fantasy in December, my interest in the debut album Five Roses has grown and grown until it hit my playlist apogee this week.

It’s a thrilling no-filler record made entirely by Graham Van Pelt and fleshed out live by three additional members. It comes across as an indie version of a Nathan Fake record in terms of atmosphere: lush guitar soundscapes and whirling synth textures with Van Pelt’s voice gliding atop the music. Five Roses was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize last year.
