Aloha Moon debuted at #1 on the Alternative Specialty Radio charts and their single "Black Magic" remains in the top 5.

"Black Magic" appeared on Gossip Girl Monday night in addition to a previous episode of The Vampire Diaries that aired March 15th.

Magic Wands will be heading to New York City in May. Stay tuned for details about several upcoming shows.

Magic Wands first garnered attention with the release of a noteworthy EP, Magic Love & Dreams, which quickly drew praise from publications like Nylon, who applauded their "sparkling, psychedelic-pop gems."

The band honed their live chops, solidifying their fanbase touring alongside The Kills, The Horrors, The Raconteurs, The Black Keys, The Virgins, Black Kids and The Teenagers, as well as appearances at SXSW and Lollapalooza.

Their debut full-length, Aloha Moon, is a cosmic dance through a universe where voices echo, keyboards shimmer and guitars splash like giant waves on a distant planet's shores. Some of the tracks on Aloha Moon were mixed by acclaimed producer Dave Sardy (LCD Soundsystem).

"Hauntingly sexy might sound like an oxymoron, but that's exactly the way we'd describe the band Magic Wands. The Los Angeles-based duo make the sort of music that you could dance to all night long - and then keep hearing in your dreams. Think shimmering guitar lines, taut drum beats, and echoing vocals, all liberally borrowed from dark '80s pop bands while still sounding wholly of the moment." - Elle

"We've had Los Angeles duo Magic Wands on loop ever since their 2009 EP Magic Love & Dreams (if you haven't heard it, listen immediately!). And two years later, the band is finally back with new material that's definitely worth the wait." - Nylon

"Ominous synthesizer and whispery vocals lend a playfully spooky vibe to this duo's otherwise slinky indie pop." - Marie Claire

"'Space is the first single from the band's debut full-length, Aloha Moon, and it's a sexy and propulsive stunner... It's just a really cool song, suggestive of the darker side of '80s pop and brighter side of falling in love." - Spin
