The Magic traffic in indie electro-pop, with songs that tend toward the kind of four-on-the-floor beats that were filling disco dance floors back in the days of platform shoes and mirror balls. They know how to write hooks, too — their most recent album, Ragged Gold, has pretty much an entire tracklist filled with songs that are liable to end up stuck in your head for days. Add some boy-girl vocals and the Guelphians make for not just one of the catchiest bands in Canada, but an excellent way to catch some Saturday night fever on a festival's Friday night.
