Vancouver based Modern Alt Rock/Dark R&B artist Bad Magic is an explosive combination of deep grooves, thoughtful lyrical content and headbanger approved riffs. Helmed by lead singer and songwriter Eric Novak, the band has been described as "if Prince could scream, wrote songs for Arctic Monkeys and grew up going to punk shows". With a ferocious appetite for connection and living in the moment at their live shows, the band implores the audience to feel your way through the darkness and get you dancing with your shadow.
The band has released 2 EPs; Self-titled (2019) and Can't Sleep (2022) and 3 singles, each with self-directed accompanying music video. Pooling the collective talent from their creative community the music videos have been praised for their visual portrayal of a colorful and narrative-driven debut effort, landing the band a finalist nomination in the 2020 Canadian Indie Music Video Awards for their song/video Fool Underwater.
As the band prepares to enter the studio in 2023 for their debut full length record they have been busy sharpening their claws at live shows/festivals throughout the country, including sold out events at The Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver, Red Bird Outdoor Stage in Kelowna amd a show-stopping performance at the annual Shipyards Festival in North Vancouver. Bad Magic hopes to share the hard work that carried them through the pandemic to unveil a deeper, heavier side of themselves through their electric live performance, musical prowess and focusing on the importance of living in the moment: feel your way through the darkness & get you dancing with your shadow.
