Magic Man join Sir Sly for East Coast dates

Magic Man join Sir Sly for East Coast dates

Neon Gold and Columbia Records Boston based, synth-rock act Magic Man will join Sir Sly for two weeks this month for a handful of east coast dates. The band will play this year’s CMJ Festival in New York City next week. They will perform at Bowery Ballroom on October 16 and make an appearance a the Neon Gold event on October 17.  You can watch some behind the scenes footage of Magic Man on the road above.

Magic Man recently released their EP You Are Here which was produced by Alex Aldi (Passion Pit, Holy Ghost!) and includes previously released Magic Man demos “Paris,” Texas,” and “Nova Scotia” plus two additional new tracks “Every Day” and “Waves.”

Magic Man is the creation of childhood friends Alex Caplow (vocals) and Sam Vanderhoop Lee (guitars and keyboards) who, while spending a summer abroad trading labor for room and board on a series of French organic farms, flushed out the music that would comprise Magic Man’s 2010 self-released album Real Life Color.  The album gradually made its way across the internet like a slow-burning wildfire until it caught the attention of music blogs  on the net.

Shortly after the release of Real Life Color Caplow and Lee decided to take Magic Man on the road and that is when they added high school friend Daniel Radin on bass, college friend Justine Bowe on keyboard and Joey Sulkowski on drums.  As Magic Man’s new live set began transforming the band’s sound, Sam and Alex decided to retreat to the Providence, RI in 2012 to a flat they called the “Fox Den” to refine their material that defined the band’s resulting Fox Den Demos, which comprises the backbone of the band’s first proper studio effort, You Are Here.
