Somewhere between a day-dream, late night strobe lights, and love confusion, you might find the sounds and themes of the electronic dream pop solo set of Magic Island. In her Berlin-based paradise, Magic Island builds us mystical, almost too-sweet lo-fi ballads that pull, unassumingly, at all the things we know too well– the feeling of yet another sunrise, the easy melt into– and then the painful fall out– of love. Underneath what seems like simple “Baby Blu” lyrics, we feel darker undertones and an honesty that leaves us all feeling a little bit vulnerable. From soft bedroom tracks to catchy anthems, Magic pulls in the world’s superficiality, harnesses it, and gives it right back to us with some addictive hooks and few effortless lines.
After first EP Intoxicated Sunset and followed by Wasted Dawn EP, Like Water, the artist’s first full-length is due to release February 2017 and features Berlin-based producer Karolini and vocals from Sean Nicholas Savage. Magic Island has played at SXSW, Garbicz Festival, Fusion Festival, The Lab Magazine’s Regenerate event series, C/O Pop Festival, and openings for Tune-yards (4AD), Soft Metals (Captured Tracks), Hundred Waters (OWSLA), Jaako Eino Kalevi, Sean Nicholas Savage, Evvol, James K (UNO), and many more.
