Milagres :: "Glowing Mouth"

Milagres are coming out the other side of something with chirping, slow-drive single, "Glowing Mouth". Sliding along with a melody completely unacquainted with friction, the chorus emerges with an amazingly subtle falsetto hook, certainly one of the best of the year thus far. Despite its seeming weightlessness, the lyrics in the refrain admonish a reminder of faith in an age of uncertainty, a curious plea for meaning in what they call the "darkness". This all gives "Glowing Mouth" an undeniable sense of previous turbulence, recent even, and this the gliding calm after the uproar. It is Grizzly Bear's "Two Weeks" but with a fistful of downers headed for the drain. It feels like a recovery, faith and hope in the unseen.

I love this song. It seems more like a love song than a plea for faith though.
