Hot on the heels of their last single ‘Hummingbird’, Thailand’s leading alternative rock band Slot Machine are pleased to announce details of a brand new track ‘Magic’ this November and will be accompanied by a stunning video shot entirely in Tokyo’s iconic digital art museum, TeamLab Borderless.
Shot entirely live with no CGI, utilising state of the art technology, Slot Machine collaborated exclusively with the production team at TeamLab and renowned Japanese director YP to create a truly unique, head-turning visual clip to complement the anthemic, rousing production of ‘Magic’. The band say: “We were truly honoured and excited by the opportunity to work with TeamLab. They are creative geniuses and we found them so receptive and supportive in this project. We all stayed up all night to shoot this. It was an amazing experience. Magical.”
About the song, the band explain: “Even though there is a sense of unrest and hopelessness in the world today, we all need some Magic in our lives.”
‘Magic’ was produced by Brandon Darner (Imagine Dragons, To My Surprise, The Envy Corps), having worked with the band on their successful 2018 release ‘Know Your Enemy’.
Drawing from a myriad of influences ranging from indie, pop, soul and rock, Slot Machine created a real global buzz with the release of 2016’s English album ‘Spin The World’, which was produced by Grammy Award winning producer, Steve Lillywhite (U2, The Rolling Stones, The Killers, 30 Seconds to Mars). With 6 albums already to their credit, the band followed up their 2017 fourteen date US Tour for Live Nation with a new wave of creativity on the world stage.
After some amazing live shows in eleven countries, they went back into the studio in the summer of 2018 to record a new album with eminent producers Brandon Darner (Imagine Dragons, Envy Corps) and Justin Stanley (Beck, Mark Ronson, Eric Clapton) due early 2020. The first single, “Know Your Enemy” (rel. Nov. 2018), was also the theme song for AIC 2018, hosted by Garena Games / ROV Thailand.
The band will embark on an Asian tour later this year.
