Here We Go Magic


I lived in New York, and I met those folks here and there, but I didn’t feel like I was a part of that community. I liked the music, but my own music has been very personal for me, and I’ve never identified with any other musical trend or movement that’s going on around me

Here We Go Magic is an American indie rock band based in New York. The group was originally formed by core members Luke Temple, Michael Bloch and Peter Hale, in late 2008. The project signed to Western Vinyl in 2008, followed by the five-piece group’s signing to Secretly Canadian in 2009. The first album has been described as “stream-of-conscious lyrics and swirls of psychedelic, lo-fi noise”, and “insistently repetitive grooves and densely layered loops”. NPR Music stated that its “colorful swirl of synthesizers and guitars ranges from electronic folk to psychedelia to lo-fi acoustic”.
