The January EP's six songs complete the songwriting cycle that HereWe GoMagic began in an upstate NewYork farmhouse upon the commencement of their critically-acclaimed sophomore LP Pigeons (2010, Secretly Canadian).

The band's signature mix of swirling guitars, krautrock grooves, pulsing synths, and hushed chants provide a foundation for these otherworldly songs.

"Hands in the Sky" is a ghostly number that showcases vocalist Luke Temple's lyrical pedigree, his words pushed forward in lockstep with a band heaven-bent on window dressing your headspace like a cosmos for the 20 minutes they've got your attention.

At the center of the EP lies what Here We Go Magic does best, a dichotomy between eerie folk sounds and driving art rock.

The jangly back-and-forth between the guitars of Michael Bloch and Temple form the backbone to "Song In Three," the yin to Pigeons standout "Collector'"s yang.

Cyclical in its instrumentation and lyrics, the spooky lullaby "Hollywood" climaxes with a mantra that wouldn't have been out of place on the band's 2009 self-titled release.
