EXMAGICIAN, THE Belfast duo of Danny Todd and James Smith, formerly members of Cashier No9, are touring Ireland, playing songs from their acclaimed debut album, Scan The Blue.
January has seen the band tour Britain, while next month sees a home tour of Ireland, including a show at Seven, Bridge Street, on Saturday February 4 at 9pm.
Scan The Blue was released on Bella Union in March 2016 and has enjoyed critical acclaim. The Irish Times called it an "aural journey that’s indubitably dappled with magic...one that is plain satisfying from beginning to end". However Danny Todd says, "It's like early Beefheart meets Add N To X," in reference to their broad influences. The band have also enjoyed radio support from Radio 1, 6music, and Absolute and their appearance at 2016's Great Escape festival won plaudits from The Guardian.
