Song of the Day: Miracle Fortress – Miscalculations

Toronto – After impressing many people with his new material at Canadian Music Week, Montreal’s Alex Van Pelt aka Miracle Fortress is back and hoping to carry forth that momentum with a series of cross continent tours. The first tour will see him teaming up with the Canadian rapper du jour Shad for the Exclaim! Anniversary Tour. The second leg of his journey will see him team up with fellow Canadian electro rockers Junior Boys.

Miracle Fortress’s new album, Was I The Wave? comes out in May. The dude actually acted as a composer, arranger, producer, and engineer on the album as well, which I guess makes him quite the multitasker. This track, entitled “Miscalculations,” is a chilled out synth pop track that exemplifies the new electronic direction that Miracle Fortress is taking with this new album. The laid back laissez-faire attitude of this song reminds me of some of the Valerie bands that has been coming out of France in the past few years. Check it out
