Magic Wands first garnered attention with the release of a noteworthy EP, Magic Love & Dreams, which quickly drew praise from publications like Nylon who applauded their “sparkling, psychedelic-pop gems.” The band honed their live chops, solidifying their fanbase touring alongside The Kills, The Horrors, The Raconteurs, The Black Keys, The Virgins, Black Kids and The Teenagers, as well as appearances at SXSW and Lollapalooza.
Their debut full-length, Aloha Moon, is a cosmic dance through a universe where voices echo, keyboards shimmer and guitars splash like giant waves on a distant planet’s shores. Having ambiguously dubbed their sound “lovewave,” each track is distinctly different yet all share the common theme of spaced-out tropical dreams, which isn’t surprising when one considers the disparate locations where Aloha Moon was made: San Francisco Bay, a cabin in Echo Park and under the stars of the Palm Desert at night. Some of the tracks onAloha Moon were mixed by acclaimed producer Dave Sardy (LCD Soundsystem).
