Majical Cloudz “Bugs Don’t Buzz”

By Robby on Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

Bugs Don’t Buzz” is one of the many highlights of Majical Cloudz album ‘Impersonator‘  & and the band’s live show (which are happening right now!). Based around a single, looped piano progression, the song’s striking simplicity is one of those many secrets behind what makes Majical Cloudz so evocative.
