The Magician & The Gates of Love are the finest pop act in hibernation. Biological brothers singing harmonies. Non-biological brothers creating a lock-tight rhythm section, and a brother leading the group on keyboard and a keyboard bench.

Track Name: Banner Year
I'll raise a banner,
I'll raise a banner, up over my head,
I'll raise a banner, and it's gonna be, all right.

It's enough to make you,
Never leave the confines of this very room,
I've seen my friends face, red, bloody and raw, alright?

Oh look what's happened to you,
I know, but it's what we humans do.

The wheels are turning, head is bursting at what I see,
The world is big and I am small and I want to eat, to sleep, to work, to trample all over it.
