The Magic Gang have come back to us with a genre-blending new single titled 'Think'. Big dollops of Northern Soul infuse their recognisable smart indie sounds, making for a very strong comeback indeed. The single announces a new album.

A fresh injection of influence from the likes of The Style Council join a cleaner, smarter lyrical direction. Try not to get up and dance to the blaring horns and skipping electric guitars on this one! If The Magic Gang continue to innovate with genre, plumbing little-explored avenues into their indie, they're onto something truly winning.

See the joyful Moth Club-set video and hear the new sounds:

On the themes of the song - which hears backing singers imploring "think for a second" - guitarist and vocalist Kris Smith said: It’s about avoiding conflict and reminding yourself not to make things difficult at everyone’s expense.”

'Think' is the first introduction the The Magic Gang's second album and their first music since their self-titled debut in 2018.
