new album + Magnet on The O.C. and KCRW Sep. 19, 2004

A new Magnet album is progressing well on the Devil’s Island near Bergen, Norway. Tracks underway include “The Bird Can Never Fly”, “Deadlock”, “Duracellia”, “Believe” and “I Miss Her So”. We have a few cool plans for October and November to get it all wrapped up after the gig at Airwaves Festival, Iceland. We hope to have the new album out across Europe in Spring 2005.

“Lay Lady Lay” will feature in Episode 5 of the new series in US of The O.C (the series where Summer finally gets it on with Seth!). Magnet & Gemma Hayes “Lay Lady Lay” gets a very cool 2mins + sequence.

Nic Harcourt is being very good to us at KCRW. He’s played “Everything’s Perfect”, “Lay Lady Lay” and “The Day We Left Town” on his morning show recently, you should tune in ahead of album release in US…hopefully there’ll be some more to come.

magnet songs on TV Nov. 15, 2002

Magnet is the soundtrack to your lives, if you watch a combination of Roswell High, John Doe, Six Feet Under or the new Kevin Spacey movie ‘United States of Leland’.

Those folks at Universal Music have been busy working the sounds of Magnet on to the big screen. For Magnet train-spotters, so far you’ll find ‘Where Happiness Lives’ on both Roswell High and John Doe (both well known US TV shows) & ‘The Recluse’ from uber rare debut album ‘Quiet & Still’ also on John Doe in the new series. …And it’s that track once more that surfaces in an abrupt living room scene in the new Kevin Spacey move ‘The United States of Leland’. Besides all of this ‘Little Miss More or Less’, a track exclusive to recent ‘Chasing Dreams’ EP has just been selected to feature in a forthcoming episode of hip US TV show ‘Six Feet Under’.
