Magic Wands has released their new single titled ‘Blue Cherry’ from their upcoming album ‘ILLUMINATE’. Drenched in that old school electronica and sprinkled with classic pop overtones, ‘Black Cherry’ gives that ‘retroesque’ feeling with a modern twist of originality paving the way for the new decade with a slight glimpse to the early eighties when music was just a tad bit more innocent and things just seemed better. They can be again, with the wave of Magic Wand.
‘Blue Cherry’ is now available everywhere digitally, including Spotify, Apple Music and Bandcamp. The full ‘ILLUMINATE’ album will be released on December 4 digitally with vinyl and CDs to follow in early 2021.
