Charming Disaster - "Sympathetic Magic"

Charming Disaster are a band, but there is this odd almost theatrical element to their music that gives them a touch of art project to their sound. Their songs are ..." stories about love, death, crime, ancient mythology, and the paranormal." Comprised of Jeff Morris and Ellia Bisker, the duo is about to release their new album, Cautionary Tales, next month.

The album opener, "Sympathetic Magic," starts as a pretty standard folkish, Americana song, with Morris and Bisker trading off vocals, and then intertwining separate verses over each other. And then the orchestration and theatrics come in, much more than the usual Charming Disaster song. Lyrically, the song seems to be about falling in love at a seance, sung from both sides of the meeting.

You can listen to "Sympathetic Magic" below. Cautionary Tales will be released April 21. The album "... ." You can get your copy via Bandcamp in both standard and deluxe digital formats. There is also a second song from the album, "What Remains," available to listen to on Bandcamp. Charming Disaster are also about to go out on tour. Dates are below the song.
