Me and My Psychiatrist – Single from Chill Magnet (2016)

 

 "You'll go crazy –
this song totally rocks!"

Chill Magnet's early 2016 single, “Me and My Psychiatrist” was originally slated for their upcoming full length album, Surf Chica Bonita. As the album evolved, however, it seemed to fit perfectly as an A-Side to "Jessalyn," another misfit from the Surf Chica Bonita sessions.

This must-have hit single is propelled by hard driving bass and drums underneath swirling, sonic guitars and crisp vocals.  The opening line quickly sets the scene: “Me and my psychiatrist took a train to Budapest. We smoked some hash and drank some wine, and now the world is spinning round just fine!”

Get "Me and My Psychiatrist" now at iTunes and other stores. Listen to the single at Soundcloud, Spotify, Pandora and other music streaming services.

 

Gringo Mariachi – Chill Magnet's Debut EP (2015)

 

"Chill Magnet has created a set of songs
that make your heart feel free."

Make sure you check out the songs on “Gringo Mariachi,” the 2015 debut EP from indie rock band Chill Magnet. This electronic dance rock duo from the Coachella Valley in Southern California creates a sound that is very Californian. The relaxed grooves and fun pop/punk sensibilities create a unique brand of alternative rock. The songs have a soulful emotional tone with layers of sonic textures. The band has a sense of humor as witnessed by the EP title.

Chill Magnet are not afraid to mix in some electronic synths, as in the first track “What Do You Really Think,” and then go to the other extreme and mash in some Mexican Tejano rhythms and percussion on the final track of the the six song CD “In Mexico (Gringo Mariachi), ..the official title track. That track also boasts grungy guitars mixed with delay drenched trumpets which create a vibe of wandering through the streets of Mexico on a sultry summer evening in a drunken euphoria.

Get the EP now at iTunes or your favorite store. Listen to the album at YouTube, Soundcloud, Spotify, Pandora and other music streaming services.
