Hot on the heels of releasing their second album Death of the Party, The Magic Gang return with the new single Somebody Like You.
The single is a shot of pure positivity which celebrates the power of friendship. Vocalist/guitarist Kris Smith wrote the song about drummer Paeris Giles.
The Magic Gang commented, “Even though the album just came out, we’ve been writing non-stop (there’s not much else to do) so we thought why sit on this song? It’s also the first song we’ve self-produced, we’ve been learning a bit about that in lockdown too. The song is about enduring friendship. Lockdown was the longest Kris and Paeris had gone without seeing each other since they were eight-years-old.”
Despite the restrictions of recent months, The Magic Gang have been making the best of a bad situation. As well as honing their production skills and working on new material, they also spread joy by offering to write love songs for fans who were missing loved ones during lockdown – a campaign that resulted in over 1000 requests.
The Magic Gang will embark upon a long-awaited headline tour in 2021 which includes a date at Cardiff’s Tramshed on March 11.
