Somewhere between a day-dream, late night strobe lights, and teenage love confusion, you might find the sounds and themes of the electronic dream pop solo set of Emma Czerny (Magic Island). She builds mystical, almost too-sweet lo-fi ballads that pull, unassumingly, at all the things we know too well: the feeling of yet another sunrise, the easy melt into – and then the painful fall out – of love. From soft bedroom tracks to catchy anthems, Magic Island pulls in the world’s superficiality, harnesses it and gives it right back to us with addictive hooks and rhythms.
This simple and fearless charm has captured the hearts of many, through consuming performances at SXSW, Fusion Festival, The Lab Magazine’s Regenerate event series, C/O Pop Festival, and openings for Tune-yards (4AD), Soft Metals (Captured Tracks), Hundred Waters (OWSLA), Ballet School (Bella Union), James K (UNO), and many more.
Magic Island will present a DJ set and a live performance at REUSE x RISE.
