Young Magic- Melt (2012, Carpark):
Now firmly settled in New York City, Young Magic's three members came together through equal helpings of openness and fortuity. The immediately fruitful collaboration brought forth two singles, all of which were fitting indicators of the band's chameleonic sound, heavily informed by West African rhythms, Brainfeeder hip-hop, UK bass, and 60s psychedelic soul. Young Magic's full-length debut, Melt, expands on their varied aesthetic, at once electronically sequenced and completely organic. Containing recordings from ten different countries, the album flaunts new facets at each turn.

Young Magic- Breathing Statues (2014, Carpark):
Comes with a digital download! Reigning in the melodic chaos of their previous works, the dystopian beats on Young Magic's second release Breathing Statues were conceived in a new series of experiments. Producer Isaac Emmanuel and vocalist Melati Malay pieced together the album over the past year while on tour - recording in Morocco, France, Czech Republic, Australia, Iceland and their home studio in New York.

As a result, Breathing Statues unfolds in labyrinthine fashion, its surreal lyrics and ghostly harmonies emphasizing the record's otherworldly intimacy, growing darker as the album progresses from the agile "Fall In My Pool" to the lurching chants of "Mythnomer." In the spirit of the album's spontaneity, the band invited a harpist to improvise over their songs, layering celestial fragments over the record's cavernous beats. The album operates in these extremes, with the airiness of Malay's vocals set in sharp contrast with the claustrophobic doom of Emmanuel's warped percussion. With Breathing Statues, Young Magic's series of audio experimentations coalesce into a new holographic landscape, showing a band progressing with ambition towards a sound uniquely their own.
