Having been described as 'honest pop,' Magic Island's soundscape is permeated by haunting and unforgettable flavours. With her Berlin-based solo project, the artist weaves together unembellished compositions with tangles and twists of her signature weirdness. Starting with short vocal lines and looping melodies on her keyboard, Magic Island builds them up and out, pulling freely from R&B, experimental pop, soul, and mainstream sounds.
Magic Island tells the story of a jaded soul and an innocent heart; her incessantly addictive tracks embrace the profoundness, tragedy, and magic of the world. The enchanting lyrics in songs like 'Warm Heaven' belie the desperate feminine rage that's compressed into her melodies. Her world is a fluid place for contradictions––Magic Island's hymns speak of softness and strength with a conviction that the two are not exclusive from each other.
From the high-reaching, airy hook of her first single 'Baby Blu' in 2013 and the late-night lusty tones of 'Like Water,' to the heart-wrenching beauty that punctuates her timeless ballad 'Easy Babe,' Magic Island's oeuvre roams playfully while she explores the most profound matters of the heart.
