L.A.-based duo Magic Bronson have been creating quite a buzz with their barbed, deceptively catchy brand of electronic rock. Last year the duo played the CMJ Music Marathon, while their last release, the Nor’Easter EP, spent five weeks on the CMJ Top 200 charts. Now the band has released “Fences,” the first offering from their upcoming album Wildlife.

Employing a soft-loud dynamic, the track begins with pared down drums and subtle synths anchored by a warm, sliding bass line (via watkins). The song builds and builds until it opens up into the kind of towering chorus pop anthems are made of. Meanwhile Michael Nicastro’s emotive, understated vocals invoke the ghosts of new wave heroes past.

Wildlife, which comes out November 4, promises more idiosyncratic pop nuggets, like the spacey synth jam “Black Locust,” or swaggering stomper of “All Night Dog Fight.” Listen to “Fences” HERE, and tsake look at a few of the band’s upcoming live dates below.
