Describing themselves as “experimental post-rock from God’s womb”, Norwich newcomers Magnolia are delighted to announce their debut AA side single ‘Television’/’Feed Me’ set for release on 16th May 2024 via brand new local independent label Shake! Shake! Records.

The single will be available as a 200 copy limited edition 12” (45rpm) and on the usual digital platforms backed by AA side ‘Feed Me’, with a single release show at Voodoo Daddy’s, Norwich on 17th May 2024 (see below for full listings).

Commenting on the A side, which premiered as John Kennedy’s X-Posure Hot One on Radio X this week, vocalist/bassist Adam Turner said: “Television is about being able to keep yourself entertained or distracted by your own thoughts and imagination, almost getting lost in them; a sort of delusional day dream I suppose. I’ve always found it fascinating how you can picture almost anything and play out any situation or circumstance in your mind. The song also represents the progression of Magnolia with it being our oldest song in the set and changing many times, through many different variations.”

Formed in 2022 whilst still at college, Magnolia are a supercharged fusion of both new and old; an exquisite woven tapestry of avant-garde rock with jabbing, staccato sax leading the assault on the senses. They are wild and gritty yet joyful and uplifting…bursting with method, spirit and feeling.

Thoroughly exciting and accomplished for their young age, the sextet are carving out a growing reputation as captivating live performers on stage (where they expand to an 8 piece line up), evoking a sonic battleground that provides the framework for both a personal and musical unity that is the very lifeblood of the band.

Debut single ‘Television’ is a refreshing 5 minutes 39 seconds of schizophrenic imagery combined with a rare inventiveness and imagination—think Black Midi, Maruja and Opus Kink, then add a pinch of early Hawkwind, a dab of King Crimson, and you’ll find a composition that shows startling originality and progressive excitement.

They have previously opened for the likes of Pulled Apart By Horses, A Void, Arxx and Lunch, and the band will play a run of dates throughout the UK during the spring alongside the likes of Klen, Mammoth Penguins, and UFO Rodeo, before entering the studio to record new material for release later in 2024 and early 2025.

Magnolia are a sonic garden of unearthly delights; a garden where each member contributes their own individual bud of colour. Make no mistake, if the almost tangible buzz they’ve created on the Norwich scene is anything to go by, you’ll be hearing a lot more about them.
