STNDRD Drop New Single / Video 'Magic'

Chris Cudby / Friday 3rd September, 2021 12:13PM

Aotearoa hip hop crew STNDRD have conjured a soulful new cut to brighten up the first Friday of spring, created with support from NZ On Air. Uplifting from the get-go, 'Magic' casts a wizardly spell to get you bopping in the middle of the room, busting out the sunniest of grooves and impeccably smooth lyrical flow looking forward to summer love — shoutout to the standout line "If we're a team you'll be the Captain / and girl I'll be your Winter Soldier". Born and raised in Otara, STNDRD started cooking up their latest single when members Johnathan Aoina, Paul Aoina and Teeroy Leo found themselves spending a whole lot of time together during the New South Wales lockdown. With a debut album set to drop later this year, Johnathan Aoina said the song came together around producer Aaron Strickland aka Astro's infectious beat...

”Aaron Strickland – AKA Astro – really nailed it with this beat. It’s the first time we’ve worked with him, and it definitely won’t be the last! From the bassline to the guitars to the bright keys, ‘Magic’ has it all.”

Sing along with the lyric video for 'Magic'...

'Magic' is out today via major streaming services.
