Young Magic at Mercury Lounge in 2011 (more by Jessica Amaya)
Young Magic

Young Magic released their debut album, Melt, last week (2/14) via Carpark and played a release show in NYC at Mercury Lounge this past Saturday (2/18). How was that show?

Melt, which you can stream in its entirety on bandcamp, is a fairly solid debut. Think Yeasayer's percussive psych pop and The Weeknd's hipster approved R&B drowned in tons of reverb, and you've pretty much got the idea. There's not too much diversity from song to song but it's an enjoyable listen for sure and worth checking out.

Young Magic has more upcoming dates this March, including hooking up with Korallreven for a few dates on their tour which hits Bowery Ballroom on March 4. Lemonade is also on that show and tickets are still available. Then they'll join Bear in Heaven for a few dates on their tour with Doldrums and Blouse (none in NYC). They will return to NYC after that run to play Cameo on April 6 with Co La and SoftSpot. Tickets for that Brooklyn show are on sale now.
