Magic Wands

Magic Wands

Magic Wands are a dreampop duo from Los Angeles. Known for melodic, catchy hits “Black Magic” and “Teenage Love,” Chris and Dexy Valentine create music that centers on their main influence: the love of all things “Magic” “Love,” and “Dreams".

Magic Wands was formed in 2008 after Chris Valentine found a copy of Dexy Valentine's song, “Teenage Love,” on her Myspace page. The two got in touch, Dexy moved from Los Angeles to Nashville, and the duo began to write and record music together. In 2009 the band released their first EP, Magic Love & Dreams. Since that release, they have toured with The Kills, The Ranconteurs, The Horrors and The Wombats, have been remixed by The XX and released two full lengths (Aloha Moon in 2012 and Jupiter in 2016).They have recently expanded to a five piece and will be joined by bassist, Tommy Alexander, synth player, Phill Galloni and drummer Pablo Amador.
