MAGIC’s latest single “Sunday Funday” is a fun song with a summer vibe.
A fun song that refers to relatable topics such as a looking forward to the weekend, and a dislike for Mondays. Everyone needs a little R & R, which “Sunday Funday” demonstrates this in an amusing fashion. It reminds me of how I look forward to the weekend with excitement or for the first day of vacation. It is a catchy song. I feel like doing the “happy dance”. This song proves more potential for this group.
They have the trademark mix of reggae-pop in this summer hit. The two genres are distinct in the song, but compliment each other very well. I enjoy the mix of genres, which is not always easy. MAGIC! has definitely achieved this with perfection. The music is similar to their first single “Rude”, having the same two-genre fusion. Reggae is not a genre that one hears often. It makes for a nice change and can be combined with pop.
Lead singer Nasri Atweh has an incredible voice that can’t be forgotten. The band members Mark, Alex, and Ben are very talented musicians. There is a nice sense of teamwork and collaboration, which are key to a successful band. MAGIC! definitely has these qualities.
Their first album Don’t Kill the Magic is available in stores and on iTunes, which is also amazing. 🙂
