SOME STUFFS: Gross Magic ready to share the most magic

Brighton, England is where Sam McGarrigle, but when he puts on the artist hat, he transformas himself into Gross Magic. He likes to do things in a simple, lo-fi manner and while lo-fi isn’t the first term you think of when talking about Michael Jackson, David Bowie, and Prince, these are some of the artists Gross Magic has been influenced by and honors subliminally in his own music.

The gentle gent started putting together his own music after his group Hocus Tocus fell apart, and it seems this demise was for the better, as it has head to an initial 5-song EP called Teen Jamz, to be released in the U.S. on October 11th via Fat Possum Records. What is his sound? Pop with a bit of Cinnamon Crispas, some alterna-grunge for flavor, and a lot of chopped up organisms to create what makes that Gross Magic so gross. Okay, not gross, but still.
