The Magic Es

A rollicking power pop track hit the usual suspect download stores on Friday 21st October by thoroughly English pop-rockers The Magic Es. They released their new single Colour Up My World via the fiercely independent Oh Mercy! Records label and this 'rough-around-the-edges' slice of rock n’ roll showcases their knack for pure pop melodies, punkish energy and garage rock guitars.

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 and high-energy rock n’ roll. 



As frontman Pete Thomson explains - “We’ve all been playing music for years. Stuart, Phil and I were playing at a friend’s wedding. The gig was in a marquee, which happened to be in Jasper’s garden."

"It turned out that Jasper not only had a garden fitting for a rock ‘n’ roll wedding; he was also a bass player of some pedigree and in the band Then Jerico. We shared stories about our various musical adventures, influences and aspirations and the band grew quickly from there”. 



Their debut release Melody Jane received airplay on over 40 radio stations in the UK, USA and Australia.

Needless to say Ralph is spinning the new single on the Radio KC Indie Show next Sunday (November 13th from 5-7pm).

With Colour Up My World ready and the band raring to go, The Magic Es will be playing shows this Autumn including The Bull in Haverhill, November 19th, The Waterfront Studio in Norwich, December 1st and Zigfrid von Underbelly, January 11th.
