New album: Falconet || Magic Potion

“We drink and play indie pop music and don’t really know things,” according to the short bio of Falconet. Still, the Californian duo – Sally Jati (vocals, guitar) and Ken Aki (vocals, guitar, bass, keyboard, drums) – managed to deliver a strong debut album. Magic Potion has 8 songs of 3 minutes or so each, songs about nearby subjects such as a Falling Star (temper your expectations), the Unbearable Friend (everyone has one), and Summer (waiting for summer love to bloom). The vocals are dreamy, the guitars jangling, the hooks enchanting – a perfect sound for this time of year. Too bad this bottle of Magic Potion is empty so quickly, more of this please. Listen to standout tracks The Train Song (about being used) and Goodbye (when enough is enough) below. RIYL Alvvays, Beach Fossils, Strawberry Whiplash.

Out now digitally. Add to wantlist: Bandcamp
