Weezeresque wailings soaked in sunshiney vibes give New Forest native but Brighton based The Magic Gang’s music an addictive slack lustre edge. A penchant for earworm melodies and an infectious sound have earned the quartet support slots from the likes of H Hawkline, Swim Deep, Courtney Barnett and Happyness over the past year not to mention their current UK tour with Wolf Alice and upcoming Great Escape appearance.
The first half of their upcoming double A side ‘No Fun’ is anything but, with an absolute anthem of a chorus and just the right amount of reverb, equally good other A side is ‘Alright’ – a contagious concoction of effortless harmonies, hooky melodies and a warm vibe that’ll leave you feeling all fuzzy inside. We dare you not to get them stuck in your head for hours to come.
The Magic Gang play The Shacklewell Arms on April 16
