Let’s start off with a test, fill in the blank: It’s _____________.
a) Raining sideways
b) Magical, magical, magical
c) Hurting my brain, who does a test?! I mean I chose to read this and you’re giving me a test?
If you picked C you’re very angry and should probably sit down with a cuppa for a few minutes. If you picked A stop laying on the pavement in the rain, it always starts smelling bad. If you picked B you’ve heard Blaise Paisel’s debut single and it’s repeating on loop in your head.
A live track, this has now been recorded into sonic velcro by Dan Lucas and sent out into the world. Magical is built on a creative riff, strong bass line and delicate keys, joined by sincere and honest vocals. Drums complete the wave of sound, and show Blaise Paisel’s sound at it’s most unique and undefinable. This is the point where Magical will start to embed in your head. A bit like crumbs in the butter it won’t leave easily either, but hopefully you don’t mind.
Magical shows Blaise Paisel’s ability to showcase all the elements of their sound. Each instrument getting it’s moment to dominate your ears whilst also sounding genius together. Magical also sees the strength of the vocals, working with the other sounds and holding the song together at some points. The lyrics give the song a whole new level of infectiousness as a criminally hooky chorus temporarily replaces every word you ever learnt with ‘magical’. Beyond the chorus however the lyrics tell a very honest story that everyone can identify with, laced with an edge of hope and self-reliance.
Just when you think it’s ending the band explodes in again. Magical is a very strong and honest song showing a band at the peak of their powers, with more surprizes to come. Check out gig guide to see the song live and to get a hold of it from Blaise Paisel face to face.
