Norwich-based trio The Magic Es are set to release their new single ‘Splinters’ on Friday 22nd February. It’s the first song taken from their forthcoming sophomore album, ‘Dead Star’, which will come out later in 2019 on Oh Mercy! Records.
‘Splinters’ is a vibrant rock n’ roll number brimming with biting guitars, punchy drums and a swoony melancholic melody. This track is a positive toned anthem that stomps and bounces along ethereal soundscapes and a glorious vibe of freedom. The driving rhythm and glorious guitar moments make this track instantly like-able and easy on the ears. The shredding solo rushes adrenaline and a garage rock edge into this delightful tune.With a sing along ready chorus and rooted bass line The Magic Es present us with another passionate joyful ditty.
Lyrically the song is about standing united in a divided world. Lead vocalist and guitarist Pete Thompson explains : “When you listen to the news these days the world seems split by polarised views. In the UK you’ve obviously got Brexit but on a more global scale even the subject of climate change divides opinion. It’s not even slight differences, people are on completely different ends of the spectrum;it’s pretty extreme.Splinters, while not politically biased towards any agenda, is a song about a divided world and two people sticking together to stand up for what they believe in despite the onslaught of opposition”
