Track of the Week #6 – The Magic Gang: How Can I Compete

After announcing a huge UK tour The Magic Gang are have returned with a new single ‘How Can I Compete’.

The Brighton band look set for something big in 2017 after first coming to our attention last year.

We decided to make this our track of the week after it added a feel good factor what has been a rather glum week.

It reminded us of drunkenly dancing in the indie clubs of the mid-2000s.

The emotional lyrics maybe shouldn’t make us feel as good as the tune does.

It sounds like the lyrics were written from quite painful personal experiences.

But that doesn’t take away from the fun of the song, if anything it it makes it feel more genuine and real.

The track is the first release on Yala! Records, the baby of The Maccabees’ Felix White.

The band have said they are hoping to get a new EP out by April – so we look forward to that.
