Miracle Fortress - Have You Seen In Your Dreams

'Have You Seen In Your Dreams' is the quite simply sublime debut single from Rough Trade signed Montreal-based brainchild of Graham Van Pelt, Miracle Fortress. It’s pretty, like The Shins, orchestral like Arcade Fire, and has an extremely unusual resonant, reflective quality which, in a rational world, should assault the top of the charts immediately. It’s got it all – choral harmonies, ambience, purpose, and a dazzling sense of being which builds throughout to evoke John Cage, although it’s an injustice to bring to mind comparators because this is truly unique. So in case you didn’t quite get it, this is really pretty special.
