EP REVIEW: THE MAGIC ES – WE ARE MAGIC

profilePic

Background
Formed in 2014, Norwich’s The Magic Es consist of Pete Thompson (vocals/guitars), Jasper Stainthorpe (bass), Stuart Catchpole (drums) and Phil Woods (guitar). We Are Magic is their debut release.

Strengths
An unashamed affinity with the best British rock influences that results in catchy melodic fist-pumping anthems. The ability to re-present seminal inspirations into fresh material that sound vibrant and immediate.

Highlights
“Cellar Door”, “Melody Jane”,  “Running Through”.

Sounds Like
The Who, Stone Roses, The Verve, Embrace, Oasis.

Bottom Line
As raw and naive as this EP is, these robust qualities only add to the honest intensity of The Magic Es’ music making – true to the spirit of their Britpop forbears. Highly recommended.
