The English alt-rock band The Magic Es will be releasing the single Running Scared early in 2017.
The Magic Es
In advance of the recorded track they have made available a live version of the song, which once again finds the listener checking that there isn’t an excavator drilling in to the building foundations. Turn up the volume and hit play to enjoy free-running rock as it should be displayed.
I am sure I am not the only one of us who is thinking – why bother with a studio recording as it is unlikely to top this gritty performance other than to fluff-up the earthy realism that makes this the song that it is for the way it currently stands? But I also realise there are folk who like their music to come with neatly ironed creases – we shall discover in due whether this is the recording that will surface as the official release or if a Studio version will be the replacement.
