More about Gross Magic:

Brighton based artist Gross Magic (aka Sam McGarrigle) began life floating through purple clouds and serenading moonlit lakes in the homemade video for ‘Waiting For You’, an unashamedly lo-fi but surprisingly brilliant attempt to recreate the music of Prince, Bowie and the late Michael Jackson.

A few months after the demise of his former band Hocus Tocus, McGarrigle began putting down some ideas for a series of demos, the result was the Teen Jamz EP, 5 tracks recalling the pop sensibility of ELO, the grunge riffs of early Nirvana, the care-free adolescence of “Loser”-era Beck and the lo-fi production of Ariel Pink.
