“You cannot defeat the darkness, you can only be the light, fuck that. At the core of night, I couldn’t imagine anything I’d like less than to be the light and in this, i mean literal darkness and literal light and literal night, why would I want to?
i liked you like i like the ark, why would i aim to defeat it?”
Slow Magic is music made by your imaginary friend.
Conceived as a DIY project with worldwide scope, Slow Magic is for everyone. It is dreamy electronic music from another world, yet organic in nature. It’s joyous, escapist, multi-disciplinary art that mixes transcendent performance with the nostalgic intimacy of 2 teenagers staying up too late on the phone.
After the release of 2012’s beloved + critically-acclaimed ▲ album & touring across the globe with artists like Gold Panda & XXYYXX, Slow Magic became an international movement. Crowds found a masked individual in their midst, bathed in fantastic light, with electronic triggers & a drum. The future-primitive combination infused the project’s electronic compositions with new life.
Today, Slow Magic is back with his 1st single for Downtown Records entitled “Girls”. The track showcases what Slow Magic does best - glitchy vocals, thumping drums & bass, huge synths + an incessantly catchy melody pulling everything together. Currently on tour in Europe this summer, Slow Magic will embark on the debut N. American tour this Fall.
