Young Magic call Brooklyn home, but their down-tempo, soul-inflicted psych-pop experiments with sounds culled from all over the world, sampling field recordings captured in Mexico, Argentina, Iceland, and other far-out locations. The band’s two vocalists are Australian ex-pat Isaac Emmanuel and Indonesian native Melati Malay, and on their 2012 debut full-length, Melt, the former’s striking rap-like verses play with the latter’s more ethereal, atmospheric additions. Following their recent tour with Purity Ring, Young Magic play a string of hometown shows surrounding their appearance at this year’s Austin Psych Fest.
