Small Miracles Release New Single “ExtraTerrestrial” Featuring Mirari

Out Now via Dirty Carrot Records 

Cardiff’s Small Miracles return with one of the most powerful, animated tracks you’ll discover. A fierce follow-up to their May release of “Mercury“. Today the band return with “ExtraTerrestrial” which features Mirari and is out via Dirty Carrot Records.

Small Miracles are a dynamic quintet from Cardiff, Wales. Inspired by the early New Wave movement, they infuse elements of Punk, Blues and Grunge into their genre-bending sound. Their music has a distinctly queer, underground feel, finely balancing heavy grooves and breakdowns with catchy hooks and choruses.

Of the new single, the band describe the following- ExtraTerrestrial is a protest song and a condemnation of war, initially written in response to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. As the lyric developed it became clear that Putin couldn’t be criticised without acknowledging the damaging consequences of Western interventionism in the Middle East, and this became the crux of the song.

It is an attack on the British and American governments which have waged war on the Middle East for decades and the deceptive colonisation of capital which accompanies this warfare. This is mirrored in the track with jarring samples, a screeching guitar solo and Mirari’s defiant verse. The crossover of punk rock and rap is, in itself, both anti-establishment and an act of resistance, and this is the energy of ExtraTerrestrial.

If there is one thing to understand before you hit play, it’s that Small Miracles are about to command your full attention, provoke an alteration in the listener’s own mood, cultivate this immense presence and create something that moves you on all levels.

This remarkable skill they invest in their creativity and their recorded efforts captures all of the above, with ease, with the new single “ExtraTerrestrial”

The track commences with a combination of recent stark soundbites layered to understand the theme and importance of the release. Immediately, the gritty tone emerges into the atmosphere, the stirring guitar rhythms and abrasive low-end scratch through the ambience joined with the brash, brutal yet perfectly controlled drum beats. The compelling vocal notes soar, and the lyrics resonate this crucial essence. The track shifts through such deeper textures, embracing a more brooding fluctuation, delving into experimental passages and layering further textures into the soundscape.

As the intensity grows, the colossal appeal of this vision dominates the movement. The lead rhythm powerfully demonstrates a breakout for the triumphant guitar riff to explode, leading to the introduction of Mirari. When the ferocity shifts to bring Mirari into the arrangement the energy of this collaboration hits you immediately, this power is enthralling. Mirari’s lyrical take and fast-paced vocal deliverance embrace the vivacity of this release. Shifting the track once again with this unpredictable flection.

Small Miracles has released this blazing track which captures this vital status, the provoking efforts deliver this emotionally involving composition. A valiant track ready to challenge.
