Magic! Perform ‘Don’t Kill the Magic’ Acoustic [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]

by | PopCrush

Magic! are known for their ridiculously catchy summer hit, ‘Rude,’ but they showcase an entirely different sound in ‘Don’t Kill the Magic.’

When the band stopped by the PopCrush studio in New York City to talk about their music, they performed the song for us.

The song starts out slow, but quick builds to a harmony-filled chorus. We love the back-and-forth pattern in the lyrics as the band promises they aren’t ready to give up on the “magic” yet.

“If you want love / I’ll be tragic / The way that you love / I can match it / If you want time / I’ll be elastic / Tell you no lie / You can have it,” they sing.

Fans of ‘Rude’ will love that ‘Don’t Kill the Magic’ has a similar sun-drenched vibe. However, we love that this track takes an entirely different tone and has a completely different message than ‘Rude.’ It’s the best of both worlds!

Check out ‘Don’t Kill the Magic’ in the video above, and if you missed it, you can play their performance of ‘Rude’ below.
