Magic Kids

28 Mar

I love Magic Kids! They sound absolutely perfect on a sunny day. This tune in particular delivers 135 seconds of pure pop bliss: cascading vocal harmonies, Spector-esque wall-of-sound production, tinkling xylophone, blasting saxophone, and sweeping string parts.

Musically speaking, it’s a case of old is the new new: each song is hopelessly, romantically in debt to the Beach Boys, but the familiar chord-changes on display sound gloriously innocent in Magic Kids’ hands.

They probably won’t change the world but they will almost certainly make you smile.
