Young Magic has a debut album coming in 2012, and you can get an early taste of its midnight-magic at the CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival this October 18 at Public Assembly. That’s your chance to hear what can only be called the musical equivalent of breathing. The band’s song “Night In The Ocean,” from Young Magic’s second 7″, to be released October 11 on Carpark, expands and contacts with shimmering synth chords, held only to Earth by a bass drum heartbeat. Stream it below.
Other samples from the album are similarly not beholden to gravity. The album is shaping up to be quite an experience, much like what it was to record it; the album allegedly came together in 10 different countries all over the world. We’ll have to look into how that worked and get back to you. The band has a couple of other tour dates planned, which you will find below, but mark those calendars for the 18th, sort out those CMJ schedules and hit the Marathon running.
