Hailing from Chelmsford, MAGIC SEAS are brothers James and John Prudence. Following on from their debut single release ‘There’s A Feeling’, the band once again showcase their shimmering dream-pop in brand new single ‘Dimensions’, which was co
produced and mixed by Ride frontman Mark Gardener during ongoing recording sessions in Oxford.
’Dimensions’ delivers classic pop melody over a wash of 12 string guitars and Phil Spector-esque drums, as the band draw influence from The Velvet Underground, The Asteroid No.4, Echo And The Bunnymen and Debussy.
Having already received airplay from BBC Introducing, Spain’s Toxicosmos and France’s RKC Radio, supported the likes of Levitation Room, Eyre Llew and Is Bliss, and been invited to play on sessions for Spencer M Taylor’s new record at the prestigious Welcome To 1979 analogue recording studio in Nashville, Tennessee - MAGIC SEAS are fast building an exciting reputation as musicians that can make things happen.
“Gorgeous - atmospheric indie in all its glory” - BBC Introducing
“Enchanting… everything you want from a piece of music” - Ollie Winiberg, BBC Introducing
“Intricate, swirling guitars and dreamy vocals ease us into the debut single from Magic Seas, a hypnotic, melodious slow-burner that sweeps from the intimate to the epic in
four-and-a-half lovely minutes. Co-produced and mixed by Mark Gardener of Ride, you can feel the influence of shoegaze on this beautiful, shimmering song but there’s something of the jangly indie-pop of the C86 era and 60s psych too. It feels like a tune for late nights, when lost souls and broken hearts can take solace in wave after wave of spiralling guitar and wise, soothing words.” - Darryl Webber (Essex Chronicle/ICYMI)
“Mesmerising” - Maria Savva, Rock And Roll
