Bio

Magic Bones are a 4-piece garage, punk, rock band from Melbourne. A mix of 60s garage girl/guy vocals, 70s punk rock sounds and 80s new wave spirit. Likened to bands such as The Clash, The Saints, Eagles of Death Metal and The B-52s to name just a few.

Since forming in 2010 they have released a self-titled EP (April, 2012) and a string of singles including ‘Round The Block', ‘Anytime Anywhere' and their newest ‘Danger I Am’ which is set to appear on their forthcoming album.

This is vintage, and I mean that in the best way. The guitars, the little shriek in the first verse, it all feels very authentic. Can't wait to press play again.

I'm exhausted after listening to this. It's a triumph of noise and energy.
