Following a UK tour and radio support across Europe and the USA, Ipswich rock n’ roll band The Magic Es are back with their latest single Fine Lines. The melodic new indie-rock track is out now on Spotify and Apple Music via Oh Mercy! Records, and follows their recent singles Wishing Well and Nothing In Your Way.
“I’ve got a friend who used to fall in love way too easily with the wrong sort of women. This song was inspired by him and his old antics,” explains frontman Pete Thompson. “It’s about two people who know they aren’t good for each other – their friends tell them often enough and they’re always arguing with a drama is just around the corner. The trouble is they can’t be apart as they need the madness of the relationship. If it’s not, their life is just too dull!”
Since forming in 2014, The Magic Es have been busy. All lifelong musicians with world tours, top 40 singles and a wealth of musical experience under their belts, the boys came together after a chance meeting at a wedding led to them finding common ground in the simple pleasures of classic records. Fittingly for a band steeped in 60’s pop and classic rock, they’ve adopted a similar work ethic to their musical heroes – releasing a string of singles and a debut album in the last two years and picking up acclaim from XS Noize, GigSlutz, Songwriting Magazine, BBC Radio and many more in the process.
