Magick Mountain sees guitarist Lins Wilson step out of the sidelines of a plethora of bands including Grammatics & Mother Vulpine, carving out their fuzz-laden sound and place within the garage-rock scene. Joining her are Tom Hudson (Pulled Apart By Horses) and Nestor Matthews (Sky Larkin, Menace Beach).
Their debut single, 'Zodiac', was released via Come Play With Me, gaining airplay from Huw Stephens (Radio 1) and Gideon Coe (BBC6 Music) amongst others.
Magick Mountain have been delivering face-melting shows around the UK, including support for Meatbodies, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Levitation Room, Death Valley Girls, Stonefield, Traams, My Vitriol and The Cribs.
"Fuzzed up gnarly garage punk rock. Gives me feels of Jesus lizard (more specifically the track Nub) and Big Business with the sensibilities of Les Savy Fav and Mclusky. Their first recorded artefact Zodiac (released on Come Play With Me) is succinct and perfect in its 2:47 stature. Big riffs, total fuzz, psycho banshees wail. More please." - Dirty Otter
“A feral blast of playful proto-punk metal that rattles along at such a brutish breakneck speed whilst cheerfully capturing Magick Mountain’s collaborative spirit of freedom and fun. It doesn’t hang around for too long but still lays down a firm marker for the future.” - God is in theTV
"A thunderous beginning for yet another brilliant band from Leeds." - DIY
