Magic Island came to be from a suffocated abyss of ecstasy and torture, like any relationship of give and take. This is the ethos and emotion of the music and the woman– when the pain is strong, the love proves stronger, something to be noted in our day and time. This is the feeling that the saccharine melodies and raw vocals intonate through the works of Intoxicated Sunset and Wasted Dawn EPs. Initialised by the finding of a Casio keyboard of the streets of Neukölln in Berlin, Magic Island developed her signature synth melodies and unexpected harmonies through this innocence and naiveté, providing a sanctuary between digital and analog production.
Grown up in Argentina, Candelaria Saenz Valiente aka Pictorial Candi nowadays lives in Warsaw. Her latest album Forever Till You Die is another fascinating, intricate puzzle piece in the assembling of a whimsical and abstracted world. In it, Valiente meanders like a sleepwalker through eight songs and a poem, sounding at first unruffled like Fleetwood Mac on Tusk, next exalted like Kate Bush on any old album, and then hallucinatory and dazed Inga Copeland-style. Hi-fi, lo-fi, past and present all weave their distinctive marks together to buttress a voice that seems utterly unrestricted.
