Young Magic sets out on a co-headlining tour this summer, in support of their acclaimed debut album, Melt, out now on Carpark Records. The tour kicks off at the NXNE Festival in Toronto. They will be joined by Boston pysch-folk band Quilt on all of the US dates. Young Magic has shared the stage all across North America and Europe with renowned artists such as Youth Lagoon, Bear in Heaven, Doldrums, Grimes, Shabazz Palaces, and Caribou.

“As if incorporating the flavor from the illegal 1920s cabaret venue on the ground floor of their practice space, Young Magic’s music is at once sensuous and restless.” – Brooklyn Vegan

“The atmosphere is thick and hazy, dizzying.. and summon an elusive mood of longing within the sonic wonderment.” – NY Times

“With no discernible center of gravity, Young Magic still manages to establish connective tissue among the synth, hip-hop, and multiculturally-inspired sounds.” – Interview Mag
