Leeds fuzz-outfit Fizzy Blood are back with their latest single, Pink Magic. Fresh from a tour supporting Spring King during January/February, the 5 piece band have carved out their musical direction with a pleasurable wrath of introspective themes and anthemic ambition. Pink Magic is a rich tapestry: flicks of gold harmonies, strokes of assertive drum rhythms, and gently coated in the quaint vocals from frontman Benji Inkley.
In comparison to previous tracks released, such as Haunted & ADHD; Pink Magic shows a pop sensibility within the groups brash-DIY style. It’s certainly gaining them attention as the track has been played by BBC Radio 1’s Dan Carter and Huw Stephens.
“Pink Magic is probably the easiest song we’ve ever written. It kind of just fell into our laps when together we were messing around with a Korg, we got a bit of a trance-like groove going and just decided to see how far we could take that before it became boring We never found the answer, instead we got Pink Magic.
The lead guitar part, which at the time I didn’t know was gonna become Pink Magic, came about when I was messing around with a musical phone in the call centre I worked in at the time. Each key was assigned adifferent pitch and pressing them in the order of a phone number pulled from the Hull phone book gives you the melody you hear in the intro”
– Paul Howells, Guitar
An EP is soon to follow later this year on the bands record label, Killing Moon.
