Blend of genres from Magazine Gap’s new ‘Calling Card’ EP

With a new full length album on the way, now is the perfect time to find out what all the fuss is about with Magazine Gap. Their first album, ‘Light and Shade’, did an excellent job of showing how this trio put together a number of different genres to make their own style. And, before the new album is complete, the band have decided to release a four song funk EP in the shape of ‘Calling Card’.

 

Released on November 25th, the tracks have been released one by one on YouTube in the performance style of the one above, for title song ‘Calling Card’. If you like what you’re hearing, and what’s not to like, you should check out the band’s website for more information.

‘What’s That About?’ single out now from Magazine Gap

On occasion, a band comes along who makes writing good music look sinple. Put together a nice groove, counterpoint piano and guitar lines, a verse here, a chorus there, and loop it all together. Easy right?

 

However, if it were that easy, everyone would do it, and it takes real talent to blend those basic elements into more than the sum of their parts. This exactly the tactic used by Magazine Gap on new single ‘What’s That About?’, and it must be said the results are very pleasing indeed. The UK is in need of a new pop laced group, and Magazine Gap might just be it.
