New single just out, here’s the lowdown
English pop-rockers The Magic Es released their new single Colour Up My World on Friday 21st October via Oh Mercy! Records. The rough-around-the-edges slice of rock n’ roll showcases their knack for pure pop melodies, punkish energy and garage rock guitars.
Since forming in 2014, The Magic Es have been busy. All lifelong musicians with world tours, top 40 singles and a wealth of musical experience under their belts, the boys came together after a chance meeting at a wedding led to them finding common ground in the simple pleasures of classic records and high-energy rock n’ roll. As frontman Pete Thomson explains – “We’ve all been playing music for years. Stuart, Phil and I were playing at a friend’s wedding. The gig was in a marquee, which happened to be in Jasper’s garden. It turned out that Jasper not only had a garden fitting for a rock ‘n’ roll wedding; he was also a bass player of some pedigree and in the band Then Jerico. We shared stories about our various musical adventures, influences and aspirations and the band grew quickly from there”.
Their debut release Melody Jane received airplay on over 40 radio stations in the UK, USA and Australia, with BBC Introducing quick to reward their ear for melody with spins on BBC Norfolk and Britpop star Rick Witter making them Track of The Week on his Minster FM show. With Colour Up My World ready and the band raring to go, The Magic Es will be playing shows this Autumn. For more info, head to wearemagic.co.uk
