"The band is inspiring mass dance-alongs" - Billboard
"Magic Giant captures the energy and spirit of the past few waves of upbeat, passionate indie-folk." - NPR
"Applying their motto, "You don't have to be big to be a GIANT," to their sound is evident on songs like "Set On Fire," making it hard to believe they're a trio." - Buzzbands. LA
After wrapping up 40 days on the road, MAGIC GIANT is happy to announce they've joined the New York-based Washington Square family. Of the decision, the band states, "We are super excited to take it to the next level with Washington Square. We think the world of Cliff [Chenfeld] and believe he and the rest of the label are the perfect complement to our already fantastic team. Thanks to our fans for getting us to this point. This is just the beginning!" Washington Square Co-Founder Cliff Chenfeld is equally enthusiastic, saying "We couldn't be more excited to sign Magic Giant. They are incredible musicians and songwriters who bring a very welcome joy and passion to both their recordings and live performances. We are eager to partner with them to get their music out to a very broad audience."
The band is also excited to share Cloudchord's official remix of their hit single 'Set On Fire.' Cloudchord states "The first time I heard "Set on Fire" I had the instinct that I could hit it out of the park, because the original was a goldmine of musicality. " You can check out the remix here!
MAGIC GIANT's self-released single, "Set On Fire," has had over 2.5 million streams, charted #4 on Spotify's US Viral 50, and #1 on KROQ's Locals Only. You can check out the video here. MAGIC GIANT will round out the tour with two epic shows in Southern California, at The Casbah in San Diego on Thursday July 28th and with a final sold out show at Los Angeles' famed Troubadour venue, on Friday, July 29th. Next up they will join Beats Antique and Eric Hutchison at select shows on the road this Fall! Dates below.
The band has been on the road for the past 40 days playing major festivals like Electric Forest, Wanderlust, Chinook, and Lightning In A Bottle. Rather than take trips back to LA in between festivals and shows to record a forthcoming album, the band chose to trick out their tour van, turning it into a solar-powered-mobile-recording-studio. Doing that enabled them to record in remote scenic locations in both Canada and the US, including making a must-watch video during the recent once in a lifetime Strawberry Moon!
