Magic Gardening Club is the psychedelic synth pop project of Spanish musicians Erica Romero Pender, David Alonso, and Cristian Pineda. From the very first track, their recent self-titled debut EP has a sense of striking immediacy, and this unique energy continues well until the last few seconds of the closer. A conscious mix of funky synth, like in the upbeat “Satellite,” nostalgic vocals like in mercurial opener “2 Wrongs,” and strong, potent basslines and percussion like in the celestial “Far Gone,” the EP is a fantastic glimpse into their sound - a mix of various textures to both tease and soothe the palate, a step into an otherworldly atmosphere where anything can grow.
“Far Gone” centers around layers of rhythm guitars and a smooth bassline while being lead by the soft vocals and strong lyrics that represent a theme of moving on by front woman, Pender. The final track, “Easier,” is slower and contemplative, highlighting again dreamy vocals that are accompanied by the lush instrumental.
