Hinter Magic Islands fließendem Dream Pop steckt die Kanadierin und Wahlberlinerin Emma Czerny. In ihrem Neuköllner Studio bastelt sie an R’n’B- und Lo-Fi-Pop-inspirierten Klangflächen, die einen tragen und umschließen wie das Gefühl von Schwerelosigkeit in sanften Wellen.
Magic Island makes the type of music you’d hear in a hip café with a skip-proof indie soundtrack. Similar to artists like Grimes and Negative Gemini, who have graduated from making simple bedroom pop, Canadian-born, Berlin-based Emma Czerny creates perfectly curated lo-fi dream sounds.

Magic Island

Lo-fi Dream Pop

Named after the Neukölln dive bar Zauberinsel, the Canadian Berliner’s project revels in dreamy, otherwordly spheres. Magic Island has published two well recognized Eps, “Intoxicated Sunset” and “Wasted Dawn”, on which she combines R’n’B with Lo-fi pop sounds and which also earned her festival appearance at the SXSW and TSF 2014.  In 2017, Emma Czerny perfomed on the big TSF Sunday stage together with the heavenly mini-choir The Angels to present her debut album “Like Water”. The album’s title aptly describes the music of Magic Island  she bathes her listeners in a range of moods, generates waves, dives in, swims to the bottom, cools and warms as contrasting pools would, and in the process sounds like the bittersweet, dawn-kissed residue of one of those long Neukölln nights.
