‘And this a fucked up world, so many things go bad. Yet here I’m smiles and laughter, outside is cold and sad.’
Magic is the new, and fourth, single from the album Professional Dreamers. It’s all about giving thanks for everything that is good in our lives. A lot of times we make songs about things we feel are wrong, that we are trying to change – but this one is about all the blessings that we have received. It’s a tribute to the beautiful, magical powers that, often unexplainably, guide us through this world of uncertainty and fears. On another level those powers have also guided us, as a band, on the sometimes pleasant, sometimes agonizing journey of creating an album. And with the exception of the musical magician Embee, who according to the lyrics “already knows what the album ‘pose to sound like” – we were all amazed by how everything just seemed to fall in place during the creation of Professional Dreamers. The song Magic is a perfect example. Until the very end it didn’t have a hook, and we were almost giving up on it when Chords visited the studio, and wrote and recorded the beautiful chorus in only a couple of hours. Then, when we were in Havana, Cuba at the Peace and Love festival in March, we met Viktor Rising who offered to shoot a video for us in that magical city. The video was edited by Cosmic and you can see the result above!
We’re surrounded by magic, we just need to open up to it and embrace it.
