"Waited 4 U" artwork

Over the past two months Slow Magic has shared singles "Girls" and "Hold Still" from the forthcoming album, How To Run Away (out Sept. 9th on Downtown Records)With just under two weeks left until release day, Slow Magic is sharing another new album track,"Waited 4 U," via Complex. The track begins with a smooth, plinky beat, eventually crescendoing into a full-on dance party jam complete with laser-like synth blasts. Earlier this week, Slow Magic also shared the brand new live video for recent single, "Girls," via Noisey. Filmed last fall on tour with Gold Panda and during this year's Coachella, the video captures the raw energy of a Slow Magic show, including his expert live drumming and one-of-a-kind crowd interaction. Last but not least is Slow Magic's new guest mix curated specially for Pigeons & Planes, featuring tracks from his favorite producers including tour mate Kodak To Graph. The How To Run Away headline tour will begin in North America next month. A full list of dates is below. Stay tuned for more exciting Slow Magic news to be announced very soon!

"Beach House-d organ blends with bold synths and crisp handclaps, and, eventually, minimalist jazz-infused piano meets heavily pitch-altered vocals."

"'Girls' is built from a gleaming, pulsating loop that will resonate with fans of former tourmate Gold Panda, its wordless vocals and guitar lines chopped-up in an ethereal swirl. Let it beam brightly into your life below."

"Slow Magic has been making music quietly for a few years now, but with his recent signing to Downtown Records it seems he's about to become a whole lot louder. His latest single, 'Girls,' is remarkably pretty, providing the perfect type of soundtrack for a drunken afternoon."
Pigeons and Planes

"The new track jolts and repeats in a way that shakes you, but in a pleasant and relaxing summer massage kind of way... Needless to say...the track certainly has the staying power to blare through many car speakers and headphones these upcoming balmy days and nights."
