Shout Magic Philadelphia Weekly Write-up

“Most Philly bands don’t get attention for a music video before a record, but only Shout Magic would write an eponymous song about and shoot a feel-good video inside their favorite Chinese restaurant Golden Empress. Besides making you hungry, it should inspire you to dig deeper into the band’s horn-addled Sea and Cake-ish sound, starting with their brand-new EP Ceiling Fan & Other Revolutions. In addition to sharp turns and sunny orchestral touches, the album gives a hometown nod in the form of the jazzy instrumental “Passyunk.” With so much pride, Shout Magic could be the best thing to happen to our city’s tourism industry since that sleepover slogan.” Doug Wallen, Philadelphia Weekly
