Here We Go Magic 2015

Here We Go Magic will release their new album, Be Small, on October 16 via Secretly Canadian. Eno/Cale's Wrong Way Up and Roberty Wyatt's Shleep were touchstones for the LP, according to main man Luke Temple who adds that most of the songs are "overtly major and optimistic." That's certainly the case with the instantly catchy "Falling," which sets a rush of acoustic guitars over a skittering beat and joyous chorus. This is my idea of a summer single, and you can definitely hear the Wrong Way Up influence here. The video, made by director Sam Kuhn, is a lot of fun too. Watch it below.

The band will be touring this fall, including a NYC date at Bowery Ballroom on October 24. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/24) at noon.

All tour dates are listed, along with Be Small artwork/tracklist and "Falling" video, below...
