We here at Euphoric love the Los Angeles based electronic pop and rock act, Magic Bronson. They’ve played Santa Cruz on several occasions as a touring band and as part of the Santa Cruz Music Festival. Formed in 2012, Magic Bronson began as an electronic duo between producers Matthew Lieberman and Michael Nicastro. In 2014 they dropped their first LP, Wildlife which was named the 14th best Los Angeles record in 2014 by BuzzbandsLA. It has now garnered over 500 thousands plays on Spotify.
This year saw quite a bit of change and growth for the Bronson. In April they released the Magic Bronson EP and picked up a third member, drummer Michael Brown.
Yesterday the boys posted a new–well, new to us–track on their Soundcloud, “Fine Line.” We say “new to us” because technically it is. As the graphic released with the song says, it’s part of the “Lost Songs 2012-2016” group. An older track for new times and it’s one many of us can relate to. The narrator describes his daily life of waking up “at the crack of noon,” checking texts, and hating the bright sunlight that’s always brighter “when you’re sober.” The chorus is something I know I’ve said many times, “Yeah, I’ve done some wrong/but oooh I’ve done some right/It’s a pretty fine line.” As always, Magic Bronson writes music their audience can identify themselves in but in a clever, upbeat way.
But this leads me to the next question, is this a one-off track they found? Are they releasing an entire album or EP called “The Lost Songs?” According to their Facebook, Magic Bronson is set to push a new album in 2017, but no word as to what it will contain. I’ll keep you posted, Euphorites.
