The Reading alt-rock band are back this week with their St Valentine's Day released new single, 'Black Magic'.
Coming on the back of 'Little Something', The Amazons fire off a raft of searing guitar riffs and percussion before Matt Thomson comes in to weave a little magic of his own on vocals on this Catherine Marks (Foals, Wolf Alice, The Vaccines)-produced track. Arguably their best yet, it'll certainly put a spell on you.
Says Thomson: “'Black Magic' is about the helplessness you feel when you realise the feelings you have for someone are no longer reciprocated. The despair at the awareness that there is nothing you can do to change the way they feel.”
