“Reminiscent of a time when guitar pop dominated the charts and filled the terraces”

The Magic Es
The Magic Es play melodic rock ‘n’ roll that delivers “sounds of early Brit-pop and mod-rock through building melodies and wonderfully textured sounds.” (Anthem Review).
Their influences range from bands like The Who, The Clash and The Small Faces via 90’s indie such as The Stone Roses, Ride and The Charlatans whilst comparisons have often been made to Bruce Springsteen, Teenage Fanclub, The Gaslight Anthem and The Jam.
Since forming in 2014 Pete Thompson (vocals/guitar), Jasper Stainthorpe (Bass) and Stuart Catchpole (drums) have released a string of singles and gained worldwide radio play and critical acclaim for their debut album, It Goes On. Henry Lipput, cooldadmusic.com reviewer, made it his favourite album of 2017 and went as far as to write that the band were “the best British rock and roll band since the heyday of the Gallagher brothers”.
The band completed their first UK tour in 2018 and won over an army of new fans as a result.
Winter 2018 sees the band recording their second album which will be released in 2019 along with a number of live shows across the country in support of their new music.
