Critically acclaimed, London- based The Magic Lantern releases “To The Islands” today! Aside from being BBC 6Music’s track of the week, recording a live session at Abbey Road Studios, and receiving praise across radio and print media, The Magic Lantern has garnered BBC Radio 1 support from the likes of Huw Stephens. This is no small feat when you consider the single “Holding Hands” is simply vocals and three saxophones for the first 1 minute and 50 seconds.
The Magic Lantern is fast cultivating a reputation for being a world class lyricist, who has a remarkable way of getting under the skin of the listener, calming the inflammation of real life, breathing hope into our collected, deflated city lungs. His own brand of jazz tinged folk on the one hand, and straight, honest fingerpicked delivery on the other bears all the hallmarks of a musicality that’s seldom seen in this Pro Tools editing day and age.
The Magic Lantern is an artist you’ll either get completely, or not at all, and that’s how we think it should be.
