Turn Up This New Magpie

Pressing play on the latest track from Magpie, I almost expected the group to have swung over to the world of Black Sabbath; the riffs are definitely hard and heavy from this Melbourne outfit. But, beneath the rolling smog riffage is a bubbling pop curiosity, as well as an abundance of self-awareness. Singer Leish explains that the song came about as a way of expressing her guilt towards being white/middle-class in Australia; she spits it out in a venomous manner, perhaps the reason she says her songs are “incredibly therapeutic.” Into Space will drop on November 2nd via Psychic Hysteria.
