“This song is for my son, and for every child. There is no other love. I wish I could protect you from pain. I dream of a better future for our children where they can be truly safe and live in harmony on this Earth.” – Magic Island stated

“Today, My Love” is Magic Island’s first new song since 2021, dedicated to her son. The song contains minimal instrumentation and gentle vocals that will resonate well with fans of Alice Phoebe Lou, Julia Holter, Angel Olsen, Jessica Pratt, and Julia Jacklin. “Today, My Love” is just a charming taste of what’s to come from Magic Island shortly as she continues to release new music.

Having been described as honest pop, Magic Island’s soundscape is permeated by haunting and unforgettable flavors. She weaves together powerful compositions with tangles and twists of her signature weirdness. Starting with experimental compositions on her piano, Magic Island sculpts loops and hooks pulling freely from R&B, experimental pop, soul, and mainstream sounds.

Magic developed her affinity for vocal hooks and harmonies at 13 when she heard the rapper Camron‘s album “Purple Haze” and fell in love with the sped-up samples in the hooks, realizing that these were actually soul singers from the ’60s and ’70s with vocal effects.

Magic’s inspiration comes from many walks of life and can be hard to categorize within one genre. On her multiple tours across Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East, Magic tells the story of a jaded soul and an innocent heart; her incessantly addictive tracks embrace the profoundness, tragedy, and magic of the world, which is a fluid place for contradictions. Magic Island’s hymns speak of softness and strength with a conviction that the two are not exclusive from each other.
