Live Review – So Many Wizards at Henry’s Cellar Bar, Edinburgh

Official Video for So Many Wizards “Inner City,” from the “Inner City / Best Friends” single (2011) available now @

It’s great that Henry’s Cellar Bar is just down the road from me as this venue is putting on some brilliant bands such as So Many Wizards. This night is promoted by Song By Toad who as well as being a blog and record label are actually helping to keep Edinburgh on the map as a city for bands to play in. Too often these days I have to venture through to Glasgow to see bands so it’s really heartening to see someone actually getting up and doing something. Song by Toad put on regular nights so go out and support them and discover great new music

So Many Wizards are a four piece outfit based in Long beach, Los Angeles who describe themselves as ‘bedroom pop’. Their pop is very dreamy in a weird way and frontman Nima mentions later that he is a big David Lynch fan and I can hear that influence within their sounds. He adopts a sort of high falsetto voice for a number of the songs which fits perfectly with the stirring high tempo pop the band play. I hope to see them over here again soon as I hear the band have finished off their debut album with the working title Hot ‘n’ Ready. Check for details on their cool website
