Magic Potion – Melt EP
out now via PNKSLM Recordings/Beech Coma
Stockholm trio Magic Potion – vocalist/guitarist Gustaf Montelius, bassist Kristoffer Byström and Andreas Sandberg on drums – burst out of nowhere with their debut track “Deep Web” earlier this year. Warped out slacker pop of the best kind, recorded on an old reel-to-reel and produced by the band itself, “Deep Web” instantly blew away bloggers around the world. The band was the perfect match for Stockholm’s PNKSLM Recordings (home to Les Big Byrd, Sudakistan, HOLY, Lucern Raze) and their debut EP Melt is out now, with cult UK indie label Beech Coma releasing the EP as a cassette + cassette/t-shirt bundle as well.
The full length debut LP is due late 2015 via PNKSLM.
