EXCLUSIVE: The Magic Es share new single/video ‘Nothing In Your Way’

The Magic Es return today, sharing their anthemic new single and video ‘Nothing In Your Way,’ exclusively on Gigslutz.

The first in a run of new singles set for 2018, and hot off last year’s debut album It Goes On, ‘Nothing In Your Way’ is a dose of intense, guitar-driven indie-rock.

Speaking of the track, frontman Pete Thompson says: “It was written for a friend who was going through some tough times – it was the easiest way I could say ‘I’m here for you and so are all your mates… we’ll help you through this.” 

Initially recorded as a demo seven or eight years ago, Thompson revisited the track, breathing a new lease of life into it for 2018.

Since forming in 2014, The Magic Es have been busy. All lifelong musicians with world tours, top 40 singles and a wealth of musical experience under their belts, the boys came together after a chance meeting at a wedding led to them finding common ground in the simple pleasures of classic records. Fittingly for a band steeped in 60’s pop and classic rock, they’ve adopted a similar work ethic to their musical heroes – releasing a string of singles and a debut album in the last two years, and picking up press acclaim from XS Noize, Songwriting Magazine, BBC Radio and many more in the process.


‘Nothing In Your Way’ is out tomorrow (27 April)
