We♥Music includes Magic Magic Roses’ single “Dusk,” the title track from their third album on Seattle’s Plume Records, in their feature “Sister, Sister”:
“Did you know that La Luz’s Lena Simon is the sister of Sarah Simon from Magic Magic Roses? Sarah, along with Kate Sweeney formed Magic Magic Roses in 2008 and released The Living Room in 2010. Sam Berman joined the band in 2011.”
Thanks to Belwood Music for the lovely review of “Dusk,” title track of the new album from Magic Magic Roses out December 2nd from Seattle’s Plume Records:
The latest song from San Francisco band Magic Magic Roses surrounds itself with a kind of mystical air of beauty, like a fine veil of mist clinging on in the early morning haze. ‘Dusk’, the title (and closing) track from their upcoming third album out 2nd December, will be sure to appeal to fans of such equally gorgeous and ethereal folk acts as The Staves and First Aid Kit. The sparse and wistful arrangement and the warm layered harmonies create a soothing lullaby to lure you away into a peaceful, dreamlike trance. The song’s aesthetic whispers to you pastoral tales of strolling through golden fields under amber sunsets, and of crackling fires on cold autumn nights. It’s the kind of music that you can get lost in and simply disappear for a while in some better place.
“Easing and delicate…like musical cleansing”: ColoRising on “Dusk” by Magic Magic Roses, title track from their new album coming out December 2nd on Plume Records.
My Old Kentucky Blog premieres the new single from Magic Magic Roses — listen to “Dusk” below, the title track from their forthcoming album, out next month on Plume Records:
“Sonically, it would be hard not to bring up comparisons to Mazzy Star and Hope Sandoval’s static vocal delivery. The song resonates quickly and melds well with the autumnal winds and colors outside your window.”
Hear the beautiful new track “In Time,” the first single off Dusk, the forthcoming album from San Francisco dreamy folk band Magic Magic Roses due out at the end of the year on Seattle’s Plume Records:
I started writing ‘In Time’ on a plane to Hawaii, and much of the song takes its cue from being there and searching for shells on the beach. It’s a funny activity, because you are searching and searching and sometimes you don’t find anything, and sometimes you think you’ve found something spectacular, and then you take it home and you realize it’s just a normal rock or something. You have to trust that the ocean will bring you some wonderful treasure someday. I was thinking about this process as a metaphor for relationships…the song again relates to the idea of reckoning – recognizing when something isn’t right and moving on…throwing it back in the ocean!
