TUNE The Magic Gang - All That I Want Is You
THE MAGIC GANG ISSUE NEW SINGLE 'ALL THAT I WANT IS YOU' VIA YALA RECORDS ON 29TH JUNE
“Britain’s best new guitar band… Rarely since the age of The Beatles and The Beach Boys have songs been this sunny; rarely since the nineties heyday of Weezer has punky guitar pop been so invigorating.” – The Times
“Brighton's best exceed all expectations… a dazzling debut ready to win the world’s hearts.” **** - NME
“Their debut album is a good-humoured romp filled with crashing guitars and massed vocals… their consistent catchiness should ensure their rise.” Album of the Week – Evening Standard
“A debut that’ll be remembered as a milestone moment in years to come.” ***** - DIY
“It does what all great pop should – lift the spirits and stir the soul.” **** - Q
“Their hooky choruses are as indelible as a pier-end neon sign.” **** - The Guardian
“Both fresh and exciting, they’re a band delivered by DeLorean from a simpler, more wholesome time.” ***** - Dork
With upbeat reviews across the board, a Radio 1 playlist for recent single ‘Getting Along’, and a nomination for Best New Artist at the NME Awards, The Magic Gang have emerged as a force to be reckoned with. Their self-titled debut album which entered the Album Charts at #12 confirmed their rising status, and is currently the highest-charting debut from a British rock band this year.
Now The Magic Gang launch their new single ‘All That I Want Is You’ as they embark upon their summer festival schedule.
Inspired by stories from Brian Wilson’s controversial autobiography ‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice’, ‘All That I Want Is You’ puts a slow-burning spin on their melodically buoyant, harmony-rich sound. Its closing lyric “Oh Brian, won’t you come out?” is the final line that emerges from the album – a reference to Wilson’s obsession with spending hours on end in his swimming pool.
The Magic Gang sold-out their entire March headline tour in advance, which included a London show at Electric Ballroom. They’re now set to play a summer of festival dates which culminates at Reading and Leeds in August, before they embark upon their biggest headline tour to date in September.
In addition to the UK dates listed below, their touring schedule is boosted with European festival dates at Benicàssim and the ReeperbahnFestival, as well as a wider European headline tour in October.
