Small Miracles

Welcome to the underground world of Small Miracles, a dynamic New Wave quintet from Cardiff. Drawing  inspiration from the early New Wave movement of the late 70s, Small Miracles infuse elements of Punk, Glam  and Grunge into their genre-bending sound. Their music has a distinctly retro feel, finely balancing heavy grooves  and breakdowns with catchy hooks and choruses to relay their bold, queer message.  

Small Miracles comprise of Finn Pelling (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Jim Webster (keys, organ), Steve Kenward  (lead guitar), James Sarson (bass) and Lucas Eldridge (drums). Their eclectic array of influences include New  Wave staples Blondie, Talking Heads and The Cure, as well as Pixies, Queens of the Stone Age and Idles in their  heavier moments. Small Miracles' debut single, Tonight, is available on all major streaming platforms now.
