LISTEN TO THE MUSIC
LONG STORY SHORT
Magic Mountains is a part British, part Canadian rock band based out of Edmonton, AB. Formed during the global pandemic by friends from Alberta and Saskatchewan, their songs were largely pulled from material from previous bands and rewritten/edited over Zoom and FaceTime, then self-produced and recorded in Edmonton.
With influences ranging from Radiohead to U2 to The Killers, Magic Mountains have a fun, energetic Britpop/alt rock sound that is a throwback to the festival and stadium anthems of the 1990's.
Their debut single - Bitter Lullaby - was released independently on January 7, 2022 and in one week was picked up on dozens of playlists and received over 10,000 streams, including 5,000 on Spotify alone.
The full EP — True Romance — will be released Spring 2022.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Bitter Lullaby is a well-crafted track, bolstered by some crisply delivered lead vocals that sit with power and precision amidst the waves of rolling overdriven guitars, punchy live kit drumming backbone grooves, soaring melody lines, a thumping bassline, quick flowing arrangement, and imaginative yet raw lyrics. Props are due!"
"Magic Mountains have plenty of 90's swagger and Britpop feel. They are definitely ones to watch!"
"Magic Mountains have a fresh indie rock sound with infectious guitar riffs."
"A big 90's Brit rock sound with some awesome vocals and guitar work that has a big colorful vibrancy about it."
