Band new and promising: Magana plays FIKA on 01.06





Band new and promising: Magana plays FIKA on 01.06

Ever wish all songwriters were actually songRIDERS - i.e. they focused on taking us for a ride, rather than just... writing songs? This neologism works well for Brooklyn's Magana, the indie pop/alt folk project of Jeni Magana, who released her haunting and slightly eccentric debut, four track EP 'Golden Tongue' this past October 2016. In it, Jeni takes us on rides of the mental variety, and since we are brainy New Yorkers, we are feeling right at home. Two songs stand out to our ears: ballad "The World doesn't Know," with its elegant melodies, trembling guitar and sophisticated chord progression, is dream folk perfection; its lyrics, through Magana's heartfelt vocals, find the ideal form of control a lover can have over the loved one: an imaginary one. "Get it right," as moody and only slightly faster, also deals with thought process and relationships, focusing instead on how the right words, but only the right ones, can change minds. (Incidentally, that's a lesson we all need to learn if we want to win the next elections). We stream both tracks below. Magana will be performing live at Manhattan's FIKA on January 6th.
