Young Magic’s “Still Life” out today!

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.
