Love for A Different Ship

“With A Different Ship, Here We Go Magic has clearly and undeniably arrived at the port of entry to indie rock’s pantheon of top shelf acts – an utterly shattering release that anyone who likes forward-thinking music must have.” - PopMatters

“Here We Go Magic loves the way a pattern promises the stability and control that Mr. Temple’s lyrics are never sure of…The album discreetly shows off the band’s meticulous virtuosity; its patterns are played, not programmed.”The New York Times

“Played live these songs will metastasise into expansive jams, and will sound great when they do, but here and now they’re sharp, disciplined, and seriously compelling.”BBC



LISTEN: Here We Go Magic’s “How Do I Know”, Pre-Order Album Now

Here We Go Magic share album centerpiece and second single, “How Do I Know,” off of their forthcoming LP, A Different Ship, on AOL Spinner today. With its instantly hummable refrain, “How Do I Know” builds layer by layer from a simple guitar-vocals-drums combo into a swirling symphony of glorious noise. The track is the molten core at the center of the sunny and spacious album that the band recorded with Nigel Godrich. Listen below.
