Gross Magic
“Sweetest Touch”

Over the years, Brighton has a sustained a pretty strong track record of being a rather brilliant place. Not only does it have a cracking pier, the world oldest aquarium (apparently), over 300 pubs, is home to Norman Cook/Fat Boy Slim and Britain’s top alpine ski racer, Chemmy Alcott (obviously we have just googled Brighton, which may seem surprising because we talk about it like natives), it can now boast the residency of our latest TOTD offering; Gross Magic. Sam McGarrigle is the magician behind the ‘magic’ who is developing a steady hype around his debut EP Teen Jamz off which Sweetest Touch has been the catalyst to said hype. A skuzzy, low-fi production that combines deceptively effeminate vocals and pop melodies with grungy guitars and baselines that reminisce of early Nirvana, with the gentle naïveté of Mellow Gold Beck. This is certainly not a bad thing – we think its about time someone came along and shook things up a bit; someone to vibe hard, if you will. You can keep your dub step and electro clicks and beeps for the time being; we’re off to get out our flannel shirt and ripped jeans out the wardrobe to enjoy this new-wave grunge.
