Miracles of Modern Science are indefatigable defenders of dreaming. Thus they subscribe to the theory that battles are won with brains not brawn. Otherwise, they might not have tackled orchestral pop so literally.

To start, the Brooklyn-based band integrate a variety of classical elements (mandolin, double bass, violin and cello) with a triumphant indie rock sensibility. And for this very reason alone they could be lopped into the same category as the Arcade Fire. They certainly devise miniature ballads that swell with purpose, providing a cerebral soundtrack to the most poignant of times.
