I love it when vocalists give themselves up to emotion and for a split second, their voice breaks on a high note. Maybe it’s the fallibility I perceive in them that convinces me of the sincerity of their lyrics; regardless, those moments are my favorites at live performances. Here is such a moment, with Ximena Sariñana contrasting her bubbly keyboard line in “Wrong Miracle” to lyrics heavy on regret. The rendition is fortunately more sweet than bitter: twenty-six (her real age) is too young to sound resentful.
