Gross Magic is Sam McGarrigle from Brighton, England and if there is any sort of glam rock revival going on with rock kids in their early 20s, this is Sam’s response. He takes everything good and androgynous about glam rock then adds in a layer of ‘80s new wave that didn’t exist before. Melodies come shooting from every angle, effected by all kinds of chorus, phasing and delays or reverbs to add to the complexity of Gross Magic’s songs. Though this release is brief, it’s a startlingly good look into the beginning of a career that will likely be very long and fruitful.
