Having spent the summer playing the international festival circuit and most recently touring Germany with July Talk, Belfast duo exmagician have just announced a new wave of Irish Tour Dates in support of their debut album ‘Scan The Blue’. Following a tour of the UK in January, the band will do a whistle-stop tour of Ireland in February stopping in Dublin, Limerick, Galway & Cork.
‘Scan The Blue’ was released earlier this year on Bella Union Records (home to Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes & John Grant amongst others). The debut album has been steadily building momentum and garnering critical praise both at home and abroad.
exmagician have enjoyed radio support from Radio 1, 6music and Absolute and their appearance at this year’s Great Escape festival won plaudits from The Guardian.
Previously recording under the moniker Cashier No.9, the songwriting partnership of Danny Todd and James Smith move into new sonic realms with their latest incarnation exmagician.
‘Scan The Blue’ is propelled by a love of adventurous, psychedelic sounds. “It’s like early Beefheart meets Add N To X,” says Danny – a measure of just how broad the duo’s influences are. “David [Holmes] lent me a Korg MS-20 and then I bought one myself. That synth shaped a lot of the record.”
Self-written and produced with the help of Rocky O’Reilly (And So I Watch You From Afar, General Fiasco, Mojo Fury), Danny and James’s decision to take the production reins came from their reverential response to songcraft. Each track carefully crafted over time and only tweaked when they knew they were ready to be heard.
