Watch & Listen
"Mixing elements of gothy postpunk and ethereal psych (with no shortage of hooks), their sound might best be described as "witchy." Like the Raveonettes or Black Ryder? This will likely appeal to you as well." -Brooklyn Vegan
"['"Heartbeat"] is a five-minute dream pop tidal wave kept aloft by a snaking post-punk bassline, with vocalist Dexy Valentine coasting above it all with serene cool." - Under The Radar
" Featuring many first takes of drums, guitars, and bass, [Jupiter] marks a shift in Magic Wands' sound, but one that exemplifies the band's musical growth and confidence." - Interview
Magic Wands are a dream pop duo from Los Angeles, California. They are know for their melodic, catchy songs “Black Magic” and “Teenage Love.” Chris and Dexy Valentine create music that centers on their main influence— the love of all things “magic” “love,” and “dreams". They have recently expanded to a five piece live.
Magic Wands have been remixed by The XX and Crystal Fighters (featured #1 in NME) as well as have toured and shared bills with The Horrors, The Black Keys, The Jesus and Marychain, The Raconteurs, The Wombats and The Kills. In 2012 they released their debut album Aloha Moon & performed live on BBC1 Radio and XFM followed by Jupiter in 2016.
