From hosting riotous house parties to writing indie earworms like early track ‘Shallow’, The Magic Gang from Brighton, have been quietly staking their claim as new indie stars since forming in a year ago. See-sawing debut single ‘Babylon’ should boot them further in the right direction.

THE MAGIC GANG
Brighton foursome The Magic Gang got us hooked with their debut track “Bruises” back in 2013, it was a 90’s throwback with great hooks and catchy lyrics, reminding us quite a bit of Weezer’s classic self-titled LP. They’ve continued to release great stuff since then too, teaming up with MJ of Hookworms to produce the anthemic “She Won’t Ghost” and “Shallow”. Anyone who’s seen the band live will be able to tell you that there’s plenty more sing-a- long hits to come.

They’ve got a European tour with Wolf Alice (who played NYC on Saturday) starting this weekend, but no US shows yet. All dates are listed below the Magic Gang will be supporting the fabuolas Wolf Alice in Nottingham.
In the past year, UK rockers The Magic Gang have dropped a few tracks online like “She Won’t Ghost” and “Shallow,” and they’re now set to release a new single, “No Fun” / “Alright” on April 16 via Telharmonium Records. We’ve got the premiere of “No Fun,” and though it shares a title with a Stooges song, it sounds more like if Blue Album-era Weezer were into shoegaze instead of Kiss. Appropriately, they recorded it with Andy Savours, who also worked on 2013’s My Bloody Valentine album.
