Brighton indie rock-group, The Magic Gang are back with a shock release of their new single, ‘Somebody like you’, and it’s fair to say, with the constant bad news, it’s what’s needed to cheer us all up.
The Magic Gang aren’t ones to shy away from creating endless bops. ‘Somebody Like You’ their new offering, is an impeccable sounding social commentary of the never ending strange times in our world. Jack Kaye soulfully sings about needing others in tough circumstances and reminiscing on good times.
Musically, this song is extremely jaunty and upbeat, it’s classic The Magic Gang style. The relentless bass line is guaranteed to get you tapping your foot and get you in the dancing mood. The chorus is infectious and melodic, as Kaye belts out the lines “Cus’ I know you’ve got it / It’s true you’ve got it you do” as the awesome chord progression and the swinging drums intertwine with each other. The harmonic bridge is beautifully done and takes the song to a calmer place before launching into the pop infested chorus once again.
‘Somebody like you’ is streaming everywhere now!
