The Magic Gang’s debut album is (finally) on its way! Already confirmed to include previous bangers ‘Jasmine’, ‘All This Way’, ‘Alright’ and plenty more, the four-piece have decided to throw us yet another anthem in advance of the record. And we’re not complaining.
Co-written by Jack Kaye and Kristian Smith, ‘Getting Along’ might be the most collaborative track The Magic Gang have ever written, musically but also emotionally. Penned in the wake of the two songwriters exiting relationships in quick succession, ‘Getting Along’ is written in solidarity with each other, and a hand outstretched from the pair to anyone else in a similar situation.
And if the meaning behind the track wasn’t cathartic enough in itself, musically, ‘Getting Along’ is an absolute stormer. Jack and Kris’ vocals zig-zag around in the verse, before they join together for the biggest chorus the band have ever written. It’s simply huge in all areas, and amps up the excitement for that debut LP even further.
