Wasted Dawn developed under the influence of a close circle of Berlin-based artists and friends, including Touchy Mob and Montreal's Sean Nicholas Savage (Arbutus Records). "Baby Blu" epitomizes Magic Island's aesthetic: a crystalline sensuality, diffuse and subdued, fragile yet immensely strong. Pushed gently along by the imbricated earworms of an echoing Casio refrain and a twirling little piano figure, it is a love song whose directness is at once innocently flirtatious and maturely candid. Yet its complicating coda signals a melancholy embrace of contradiction and bittersweet impossibility that gives Wasted Dawn a unique depth. Includes download code.
