Debut single and pulsating album standout, “Falling,” builds upon arpeggiated, satellite signal synths and joyous, interlocked acoustic strums and fuzzed guitar. It gathers momentum with each phrase about falling in love (though it’s unclear if this is a thing to be celebrated or dreaded) until the whole affair suddenly halts into a nothingness that sounds like a Gregorian chant from the bottom of a wishing well. Watch the video below for the debut single, directed by Sam Kuhn.
Here We Go Magics Be Small is out October 16th on Secretly Canadian, and available for pre-order now. All digital pre-orders come with an instant free download of Falling. Catch Here We Go Magic all over Europe and North America this fall. All dates are below.
