So Many Wizards hail from LA, and their debut full-length record Warm Nothing confirms them as the rising stars of that city’s musical “renaissance period”. The quartet centers around singer Nima Kazerouni and his gentle falsetto vocals, while the rest of the band’s sun-drenched instrumentals create an upbeat background for the often profound lyrics. “Lose Your Mind” has all the verve and power needed for an indie-rock hit, while “Inner City” is more of a soft, slightly twee (think Belle & Sebastian) electro-pop ballad. If you’re looking for a new band to become obsessed with, then So Many Wizards are the ones for you.
Warm Nothing is out now on JAXART Records.
