Biography

Magistrates strive to their own brand of pop harking to the ambience of Caister
Soul Weekenders and Southend blues parties. The wealth of their influences flip
flops from soul and disco to Chicago house and krautrock, for these records
they’d be set to flog their three swords.
What began as a way to alleviate the boredom of existing in a small English town
has become Magistrates. The band have joined the fleet of Essex musicians

fuelled by aspirations far greater than the expectations of their peers to
create records which could barely be traced to the place of their conception.
Upon formation the band released a demo titled ‘Make This Work’ on their own
imprint of XL recordings, which quickly caught the attention of the likes of
Damon Albarn & Zane Lowe. They have made their rounds on NME tours and festivals
across Europe. While the boys were lapping up the energy of it all the band were
set to tease fans by biding their time before promises of releasing an album.
Since then there have been rumours of a first record but this year is to be the
year. Magistrates’ offering comes from a converted cowshed where they have been
recording.
