SONG PICK: Fizzy Blood – Pink Magic

“Pink Magic”, the latest single by English indie rockers Fizzy Blood comes not only with some crazy, instantly catchy hooks but also a lot of swagger and the best of what Brit pop/rock has to offer. What a party banger! Well done. It is always a special treat to learn something about the development of a song, how it came together. For the guitar lovers among us, Paul Howells (guitars) has just the perfect insight:

“’Pink Magic’ is probably the easiest song we’ve ever written. It kind of just fell into our laps when together we were messing around with a korg, we got a bit of a trance-like groove going and just decided to see how far we could take that before it became boring We never found the answer, instead we got Pink Magic. The lead guitar part, which at the time I didn’t know was gonna become Pink Magic, came about when I was messing around with a musical phone in the call centre I worked in at the time. Each key was assigned a different pitch and pressing them in the order of a phone number pulled from the Hull phone book gives you the melody you hear in the intro.”
