Here We Go Magic

Biography


The elastic pop songs of Here We Go Magic are like a musical approximate to the kinetic, carefully balanced mobiles of sculptor Alexander Calder. There is an immediate weightlessness and elegance to the movement of the pieces that belie the delicate, toiling construction at play, the everything in it's right place of the design, the undeniable dedication to craft, the elbow grease, just how fussed over these pieces most certainly are. And more simply, like Calder's mobiles, the songs seem to float just above us, in a space that feels just out of our terrestrial reach. And though HWGM's new album Be Small finds the band taking a, well, smaller approach to production and finding more intimate soundscapes -- from the live, expansive sound of 2012's A Different Ship, produced by Radiohead's 6th man Nigel Godrich, to Be Small's direct-to-board home-recorded album -- it hosts no less acrobatics of musicianship and a singular sonic ambition.
