- Magic Happens / Comes The Night by Virals
1 review. Write a review for us »
YO! So, Shaun Hencher of Lovvers (and more importantly The Murder Of Rosa Luxemburg) fame licks his wounds and returns to the old recording biz under a solo guise - Virals. From the opening chords of 'Magic Happens' it becomes apparent that Virals is poppier than previous outings as Hencher singing (audibly) over a doo-wop pop number - albeit performed with a little more gusto than the Captured Tracks crowd. He still knows his way around a catchy melody and plays all the instruments here (bar the drums) so props to that shit. Flip it and 'Comes The Night' sounds like a breezy American indie pop number in the vein of early Lemonheads with a little of the quirk of Blur thrown in for good measure. Both tracks are mad decent and prove there's tons of mileage left in the boy. Could be the start of summat real magikali.
