Magic Fight is a self-proclaimed “sad pop” underground indie rock band based in San Francisco, California. Venezuelan native Hernando Buitrago, along with his band mates, Alex Haager, Alex Pinto, and Jeff Gist’s have created a collection of music that is dense and engorged with beautiful and consistently soothing soundscapes. Their extremely dreamy and darkly pop-driven track, Fangs, is a single and the very first track on their newly released full-length album, Wooden Swords and Stolen Echoes. The entire album is fluid and enigmatic, with musical resemblances to bands like The Shins and Modest Mouse.
Magic Fight is a fresh and sonically worthy band that has taken shoegaze and sad pop to new levels of grandiosity. Make sure you follow this up and coming band. They have a lot to offer, and Herndando Buitrago is proving that his diverse music projects are potent and of great quality and potential.
