Her Magic Wand from Paris in France is the alt-electro performer Charles Braud.
The synthetics weave their way in gentle undulations as Her Magic Wand divest thoughts into creativity. The music reminds me of ’70s British Rock, the likes of ELO, as the warming washes take on tinctures of rainbow palette as they billow around the room. Unlike needlessly voluminous extravagances of the influence, Charles holds a tight rein to the tracks, which have a clear purpose.
Drifting in and out of psychedelia Her Magic Wand uses the travels of the mind not, to disappear into vortexes of the impervious, rather to allow the music to take on its fluidity that skims the cilia into sympathetic motion. The sounds slip easily into the mind and the fascination lays, like watching oil floating on water as a spectrum of colours reflect, mesmeric for its viscosity.
An LP is in the works for 2015 and having had the opportunity to listen to four of the tracks, I give you an advanced notice, Everything At Once will be worth adding to the collection when it finally appears.
The lead and LP title track Everything at Once – Single – Her Magic Wand is available on iTunes.*
