The Incredible Magpie Band will become your new favourite band. How do I know this? It’s simple really, this is a band that will make you feel good to be alive, and ultimately isn’t that what we all want from our favourite band?

This five piece from Wakefield have been together since 2012 and this togetherness clearly shows when you listen to their music and watch the video to their latest single ‘Straight Lines’ - they look like a bunch of mates enjoying life and believing in the music they record and play.

Let’s get one thing out of the way from the start, before the cynics start digging their claws in, there is nothing particularly new about The Incredible Magpie Band. They have a sound that has been done so many times before, particularly in the 60s and 90s, but what The Incredible Magpie Band manage to do so well is capture the vibe of the time and wear their influences proudly on their sleeves in the songs they write.

‘Straight Lines’ is the perfect pop song with sounds of many of the bands that I loved in the 90s captured within three minutes; The Verve, The La’s, The Boo Radleys, Oasis and so many more can all be heard in this great song. It is one of those songs that from the very start makes you want to sing, dance, punch the air with joy and forget about any troubles you may have. The song builds from verse to chorus with perfection with the end result being a song that the listener will be singing for a very long time to come.

With a debut album due for release in May, together with a loyal fan base and recognition in the industry from the likes of Liam Gallagher, Jesus and The Mary Chain and The Rifles, it is surely a given that The Incredible Magpie Band will soon become a household name.
