The new album from ‘your imaginary friend' Slow Magic was released earlier this month. The album, titled “Float”, is a thing of pure musical beauty. The strings in “Diamond Ring”, drums in “Drum”, piano in “Relent”, and the various synths found throughout the album all come together to create a journey that stimulates the ears and mind.
“My last album “How To Run Away” was about my life at that time, really just moving at all times, running away from any reality and problems. I wanted to capture that feeling of freedom of youth when nothing really seems to matter in the long term. A lot of the songs were about specific places in the world I was able to experience for the very first time.”
“On “Float” I wanted to go back to the beginning of Slow Magic. I wanted to capture the raw sounds and feelings and freedom of my first albums “▲” and “How To Run Away” while expanding and evolving into something completely new. Most of the songs started very stripped down, just with piano and organic instruments. I let the songs write themselves without forcing them to go anywhere they didn't naturally go.”
Slow Magic – “Float” is available now via Downtown/Interscope.
