San Francisco’s jangle-pop group Magic Bullets have released the first single from their upcoming (and final) release, the Much Ado About EP, available April 3 on Brooklyn–based label Mon Amie. We interviewed the band when they announced the split this summer and you can read about their thoughts (spoiler: there’s no bad blood) here.
“What Took You So Long” is just the type of sunny pop we’ve come to expect from Magic Bullets over the last 7 years. While lead singer Philip Benson laments a long-term crush not reciprocating his feelings (“Just when I thought the chance had ended / What took you so long?”), we’re left pondering how long we might end up waiting for the first Magic Bullets reunion show.
