UK’S NEXT BIG VOCAL SENSATION, THE MAGNETS ARE HEADING TO AUSTRALIA FOR SHOWS IN MELBOURNE & SYDNEY IN JUNE!

The Magnets are the singing secret that the stars have kept to themselves, the vocal group with a word-of-mouth reputation for spicing up the parties of supermodels (our very own Elle MacPherson), heads of state and billionaires with their blend of razor-sharp harmonies and jaw dropping beatboxing. But now, after selling out London’s legendary Roundhouse, a series of electrifying festival appearances and a starring role in the latest T-Mobile flash-mob advert The Magnets are emerging as one of the must see acts on the current British music scene and they are taking their unique style of music to Australia for shows at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne, Sydney andNoosa.

Literally a ‘six-man sound machine’, The Magnets make all their music with their mouths alone, including the drums of vocal percussionist/ beatboxer Andy Frost and the richly textured bass of Fraser Collins. However, this is no attempt to mimick instruments, but rather the blending of six distinctive voices to create a unique sound that rivals any band with guitars and keyboards.

At the heart of The Magnets music lies a gift for extraordinary arrangements that radically restyle and subvert songs from artists as diverse as Kraftwerk and Beyoncé. Highlights include a sun soaked lounge version of Blur’s ‘Girls & Boys’, an adrenaline-fuelled mash up of ‘Are You Gonna Go My Way’ by Lenny Kravitz and Fat Boy Slim’s ‘Weapon of Choice’ and the band’s trademark mega-medleys, currently a show stopping A- Z of movie themes from A-Team to Zulu.

In concert, The Magnets marry musical sophistication with a road-seasoned theatricality that suffuses their shows in imaginative choreography, engaging humour and plenty of audience participation.

The Magnets are now centre-stage in the current revival in vocal harmony music, seen everywhere from Glee to The Choir, having paid their dues as street performers in London’s Covent Garden and near continuous international touring they have enjoyed a colourful history, including an EMI record deal and support tours with Tom Jones and Michael Ball.

Most recently The Magnets have been seen and heard on ITV1’s Magic Numbers, BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio 1 and 2, and Louie Spence’s Showbusiness.

Currently promoting their new album and show ‘Gobsmacked’, 2011 will see The Magnets appear on Comic Relief(UK), at the Glastonbury Festival, a support slot with Blondie and the band’s first Australian tour.
