Interview :: Computer Magic [10.6.10]

Computer Magic has been absolutely crushing the last few months and recently, she was kind of enough to shoot some emails back and forth.. Fresh-faced with an ear for melody that recalls the unremembered 1980s, her digitized anthems are the marching orders for a new generation of kids who don't need to be told which leather jacket to wear or which Molly Ringwald flick to identify with. Like Computer Magic, they'd rather do it themselves.

32feet: Top 5 Desert Island records?

Computer Magic: Not in any particular order: All Things Must Pass - George Harrison, Their Satanic Majesties Second Request - The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Tigermilk - Belle & Sebastian, Pink Moon - Nick Drake, Face to Face - The Kinks. Of course my mind would probably change once the situation arose.

Describe your music in three words.

Good, I hope.

Loneliness and isolation seem to be running lyrical and sonic themes in your music so far. What are you after?

Whenever I compose a song, the lyrics come last. They're all made up after I've completed a track, so no song is ever intentionally created to be about something specific; the isolation themes are somewhat on accident. Also, I always feel better listening to songs I can relate to, so I just try and make songs that someone else could.

What is the one thing people don't know but should absolutely remember about your music?

They should remember that I've only just started making music less than half a year ago, so there will be a lot more of it.
