Music 0. Boogie nights – michaël descoteaux. This album is definitely more structurally all over the map in a good way. Compared to their 2012 debut album Strange Heaven, the subtext on Bermuda boasts a familiar echo of self deprecating humor that was heavily present on the bands previous albums, but focusing less on inner personal relationships. Bermuda steps the bands talent and growth up though in a big way, and that’s what it’s all about isn’t it, growing, evolving, leaving your audience and listener in a perpetual state of mystery and wonder on what you’ll do next and that it’s all worth the wait – Mrs. Magician does just that.

Their nervy attitude is sharper than ever on Bermuda, a collection of paranoid power pop that's equally beachy and angst-ridden. The band reunited with producer and Swami Records head John Reis, who helps give Mrs. Magician a glossy, hard-edged sound that brings their misanthropic songs into clearer focus. Though the reverb that gave Strange Heaven an extra dose of surreality is missed, what Bermuda lacks in atmosphere, it makes up in presence: If Mrs. Magician used to have a distinctive sound, now they have distinctive songs
The Mrs. Magician frontman says "every song on 'Bermuda' is about being confused and lost". by Dan Redding May 20, 2016. Mrs. Magician (Turnbloom is second from right). Magician are a surf-tinged rock band from San Diego who fuse catchy, sun-drenched songs with lyrics about death and despicable things. You can hear that juxtaposition of light and dark on the band’s new single, ‘Forgiveness,’ when frontman Jacob Turnbloom vows, no more smellin’ flowers while I’m in the weeds. The band’s sophomore LP, Bermuda, dropped today. The only record he ever actually did for us, for the album, was for the B Sides record that we did. But Strange Heaven and Bermuda, I literally just looked through his artwork and picked something that I thought worked well with the songs, visually. The ‘Bermuda’ Album Cover.
