The Magic Gang share surprise new single ‘Somebody Like You’

Their new song is all “about enduring friendship”.

Following the release of their second album ‘Death Of The Party’ in August, The Magic Gang have been busy making even more bops, and now they’re sharing surprise new single ‘Somebody Like You’.

“Even though the album just came out, we’ve been writing non-stop (there’s not much else to do) so we thought why sit on this song?” The band say. “It’s also the first song we’ve self-produced, we’ve been learning a bit about that in lockdown too. The song is about enduring friendship. Lockdown was the longest Kris and Paeris had gone without seeing each other since they were eight-years-old.”

Check it out below, and revisit our chat with the band from our August 2020 issue here.
