With Memphis, their debut LP, MAGICKIDS have crafted a record that lives up to the Memphis tradition of individualistic, joyful music-making.They create swelling and heartfelt baroque pop gems. Recorded at Doug Easley's studio by Shane Stonebeck (Vampire Weekend, Sleigh Bells),Memphis packs a seriously powerful sonic punch.MAGIC KIDS share with last century's masters of pop music - Brian Wilson,Van Dyke Parks, Jeff Lynne - the ability to take a tiny and simple song, a moment of wide-eyed sincerity, and translate it into something that is bursting with life.
Their infectious upbeat music is instant
Rarely has a band with so little output
