The Magic Kids are a mysterious band of pop pranksters from Memphis featuring members of The Barbaras and Girls of the Gravitron who, after they're banished from the kingdom, discover a secret bohemian forest shanty. There, they work tirelessly to create the magical sound that will lift the spell and grant them entrance back into the castle.The Kids channel Jan and Dean, Brian Wilson, and Phil Spector for Hey Boy, their first single. Will it be enough to appease the King and his court? Only time will tell."These guys seem much too young to cram this much boy/girl-group-three-part-harmony-wall-of-sound-Phil-Spector-reloading madness into one song, but I guess that's the way they raise them in Memphis these days. Whether or not they've lived it, they've heard it, and ultimately that's half the battle. If you can't score the movie playing in your head to this song, consider getting a new movie."--RCRD LBL "One of the many bands that made a big impression on folks at SXSW this past week was Memphis, TN's the Magic Kids. This multi-member band seems like an educated bunch on 'Hey Boy.' Riffing on the '60s pop songbook, they lift the micro-orchestrations of Phil Spector or Brian Wilson for a wall-of-sound led by a Mike Love-like lead vocal, some skronking horn, and some delectable three-part harmonies."--Exclaim!
