Young Magic’s “Still Life” out today!

May 13, 2016 10:14 am

Still Life is a deeply personal and idiosyncratic record, somewhere close to the enchanted electronic pop realms occupied by Björk and Broadcast, yet unique to Young Magic. Found sounds and textures feature prominently across Still Life, including the Javanese gamelan, blossoming into ecstatic bursts during the climax of “Lucien.” Melati grounds the textured sonic world with arrows direct to the heart, like the arresting “How Wonderful” where the singer overflows with regret for “all those things I never said.” This is as deeply personal as the group has ever been.

The record is officially out today! Pick up a copy on the Carpark shopiTunes or in a record store near you. The album is also streaming via [Spotify] and Apple Music. Stop by select retail stores and receive limited edition Young Magic stickers with the purchase of Still Life, while supplies last.

stream young magic’s “still life”

May 6, 2016 12:05 pm

Happy Friday! Young Magic’s new album “Still Life” is streaming a week early over at WNYC’s Soundcheck. Give it a listen here. Only a week left to pre-order your copy from the Carpark shop or iTunes.

“The cumulative effect is that we understand the title Still Life to mean its common denotation: a picture, a snapshot of a period of convalescence in [Melati] Malay’s journey. But it’s also a reminder that the varied emotional strata expressed in these songs are all, in fact, still life. Despite everything dark and dense, there’s a pulse, alive and invigorating.”

The duo kicks off their tour with Yeasayer next week. Tickets on sale now.

Young Magic shares third single “Default Memory”

April 25, 2016 4:42 pm

Less than three weeks until the Young Magic’s album Still Life is here! The duo shared their third single, “Default Memory,” today via i-D. “‘Default Memory’ was written as a dedication to the ones I love, both living and passed. It came about around the time I was visiting family in Indonesia… a reminder that memories are never still like a photograph, but constantly oscillating. I was hoping to capture the feeling of dynamic suspension… memories as active objects… orbiting, changing and reflecting each place I’ve ever walked through.”
