The Secret Life of Sofia has shed it skin to become the Brooklyn-based Milagres, an indie folk rock-pop band that is re-releasing their album Seven Summits as they finish up recording a new one due to be out later this year.

The awesome aspect of Seven Summits is that it was recorded on an abandoned farm in Massachusettes and is a collection of stories picked up from mountain guides, fellow climbers, history books and folklore in the climbing community. Singer Kyle Wilson, an obsessed mountaineer, is to be thanked for that, and the eeriness of recording in an abandoned location comes across beautifully in the tracks. The song below starts off with aching vocal harmonies before cutting to a surprisingly more upbeat tune that carries on the organic and reverberating nature of the album itself.
