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 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.

'Danger I Am' is the band's third single in the last year to be added to Triple J's rotation playlist and has received praise online and at community radio both nationally and abroad as well as spending 8 weeks in the Australian Independent Radio Charts, peaking at #2. In the past 12 months, Magic Bones have toured nationally with Stonefield, British India, Kingswood and in June 2016 will be main support for punk rock legends, Radio Birdman's Australian tour.

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.

What a great track. Upbeat, inventive rock and roll.

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