This is a proper summery split single. Magic Kids and Smith Westerns unite forces to make a beautiful and fresh single, half parodying each others previous artwork for the cover of this single. Magic Kids' Superball is a pop number that sounds like a Hanna-Barbera theme tune with a 60s vibe. They will have their first album out on the 24th of August under the name Memphis.
Smith Westerns' Imagine, Pt. 3 finds them more pop than ever before, incorporating orchestral arrangements to the song and choruses and escaping a bit from the more rnr sound of their first album and getting closer to a Phil Spector production. We'll have to wait for further releases in order to know if this is one-off or if it's the new sound they are looking forward. You can get the single now on Fat Possum or selected retailers.
