Funk and soul get a pop makeover with Magazine Gap

A lean, mean three piece with a slick sound, Magazine Gap are a pop-rock group with real potential. Their new single ‘What’s That About?’ is out now, mixing a funk-soul feel with an accessible melody or two to great effect.

 

With an album coming soon, this is a fantastic introduction to a band who could well go a long way in the next few years. It’s also interesting to note that they haven’t been compelled to include a short, basic chorus to gain favour. By keeping it longer and less catchy, it fits nicely with the overall groove rather than sticking out like a sore thumb. Let’s just hope that this approach doesn’t prevent them getting the credit they deserve.
