The Magic Gang & Juice to support Swim Deep

May 6, 2014 in News

Following the very exciting announcement that Swim Deep will be playing the launch of brand new Birmingham venue The Oobleck (part of Alfie Birds) situated in the heart of Digbeth’s Custard Factory on Sat 24th May, we’re very excited to announce The Magic Gang and Juice will be joining the bill.

The Magic Gang was initially a new project featuring members of YRRS, Home School and Bayy, with one bedroom demo surfacing online in the form of the utterly infectious ‘Bruises’. One year on and, having played a mere handful gigs and added a couple more songs to their catalogue, the band are still barely out of the pram – yet they’re already playing packed-out venues alongside Swim Deep and Courtney Barnett, demonstrating decidedly understated and mellow numbers to increasingly adoring audiences.

Lyrically anxious whilst remaining emphatically nonchalant in their sound, the Brighton-based four piece showcase everything that’s got us hooked on the new wave of Captured Tracks-inspired slacker rock.

Juice are a new Birmingham four-piece, who already have support slots with Jaws, Coves, The Crookes, Dumb & LSA under their belts.

“Simple, contagious lyrics and infectious hooks that bury themselves inside your brain so fast it’s impossible to forget them make ‘Sugar’ one of the most anticipated releases the city has to offer. When this track does finally drop, there won’t be much you can do but fall head over heels.” - Counteract Magazine
