Bio

Magic Bones are a 4-piece garage, punk, rock band from Melbourne, Australia. First formed in 2010, Magic Bones have since released a self-titled EP (April, 2012) and a string of singles including ‘Round The Block' (February 2014) and ‘Anytime Anywhere' (October 2014), which have both received high rotation on Triple J. Currently working on a full-length album, Magic Bones are about to release their follow-up single 'Danger I Am', due for release in June 2015.

Their last single ‘Anytime Anywhere’ saw praise from reputable industry blogs and radio stations nationally and abroad, and was a firm favourite at Triple J. After being premiered on 'Home and Hosed' and featuring on Richard Kingsmill's ‘2014’ program, 'Anytime Anywhere' was then added to rotation in October 2014 and is still being played.

Magic Bones have shared the stage with some of the country’s finest bands including British India, DZ Deathrays, Kingswood, Bad//Dreems, Harts, Grenadiers, Loon Lake, Food Court, Lurch and Chief and in June/July 2015 will be touring nationally as main support for Stonefield's 'Golden Dream' single launch tour.

Since their very first show, Magic Bones have had audiences gobsmacked by the multi-instrumental / multi-vocalist nature of their set. They have been likened to a mix of bands such as The Clash, Buzzcocks, The Saints, The B-52s, Queens of the Stone Age, Blondie, and The Eagles of Death Metal to name just a few. Producing and performing a unique sound with a nostalgic twist, the praise is a sure reflection of the band’s musicality and creativity.

New single 'Danger I Am' coming soon...

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.
