Theirdebut single ‘No Fun/Alright’ earlier in the year was a blinder. There’s no denying that. New Forest based quartet The Magic Gang have been causing a stir with their Weezeresque slacker rock. The have a five track EP which due for released on Friday January 8th via Telharmonium Records. We catch up with the guys for a quick chat…
You’ve had quite a year…talk us through the high points?
Well it’s gotta be visiting Jamaica, it was an incredible and fulfilling experience. Also there was touring with Wolf Alice earlier this year!
Your new EP is out in Jan 16, tell us more about it?
The Ep is a compilation of songs written over the last year or so, it features a song recorded at Tuff Gong in Jamaica! It represents our current musical tastes more so than our previous release.
You’re back out on tour now right, how is it going?
Whilst it might be a little chilly, we are more than excited to be back on the road! Touring with TMG is always a blast, and we always have many unusual techniques for maintaining morale.
What’s the plan for 2016…world domination?
Seeing as we are all aspiring overlords, pretty much! Gonna do a couple more singles and hopefully start our debut album.
