The Magic Gang release ‘EP Three’, share YALA! session of ‘No One Else’

We’ve got the first watch of the band playing the EP’s track at the former Maccabees HQ.

The Magic Gang are releasing their excellent new record, ‘EP Three’, today (24th March), and we’ve got the first peek at a new session they recorded for new label Yala! Records.The band played ‘No One Else’ at The Drugstore, the Elephant & Castle home to The Maccabees, and now YALA! boss Felix White. See - note the ‘Colour It In’ artwork on the wall!We caught up with The Magic Gang and their new boss Felix last month to talk everything ‘EP Three’. “Felix just seems to really have his finger on the pulse with new bands,” the band’s Jack Kaye opens up, on the beginnings of their relationship with YALA!. “He genuinely seems to be able to scope out exactly what’s going on. A while ago, he’d seen us play and given us a shout on the radio, and we were really excited about that. It just went from there, when he got in touch about the fact he was starting a label.“For us, to even have that kind of praise, it was a huge, huge compliment.” Unsurprisingly, it was a bit surreal. “Especially because I was a huge fan when I was younger!” enthuses guitarist Kris Smith. “When we were recording with Hugo, there was this really weird moment,” Paeris continues. “We were just watching stupid YouTube videos of Olly Murs falling over, all in hysterics, with Hugo from The Maccabees and we’re all like, ‘What the fuck is going on?!’”Watch the YALA! session of ‘No One Else’ and stream ‘EP Three’ below.
