With upbeat reviews across the board, a Radio 1 playlist for recent single Getting Along, and a nomination for Best New Artist at the NME Awards, The Magic Gang have emerged as a force to be reckoned with. Their self-titled debut album confirmed their rising status, and is currently the highest-charting debut from a British rock band this year.

Now The Magic Gang share their new single All That I Want Is You as they embark upon their summer festival schedule.

Inspired by stories from Brian Wilson’s controversial autobiography Wouldn’t It Be Nice, All That I Want Is You puts a slow-burning spin on their melodically buoyant, harmony-rich sound. Its closing lyric “Oh Brian, won’t you come out?” is the final line that emerges from the album; a reference to Wilson’s obsession with spending hours on end in his swimming pool.

The Magic Gang sold-out their entire March headline tour in advance, which included a London show at Koko. They’re now set to play a summer of festival dates which culminates at Reading and Leeds in August, before they embark upon their biggest headline tour to date in September.
