Summer is the name of that girl from The O.C. It is also the best season of the year. And now “Summer” is your first taste from the Memphis quintet, Magic Kids. There are moments during “Summer” where it’s a little awkward, musically speaking – I think it is the attempted grandeur confused with twee-baroque-pop elements that is somewhat questionable. That said, it is towards the end of this track where the falsettos and the Beach Boy-esque melodies kick in that you drift more towards adorable than awkward. Magic Kids are youthful, ambitious and ingenious, so expect nothing more than big things.
