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 Magic Island. A Canadian transplant here in Berlin, Emma Czerny builds us 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 and vulnerability. 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.
