about

This free / pay-what-you-want single accompanies a small Magana solo tour of New York and California.

Previously unreleased up to now, live favourite ‘Pages’ is an early experiment in Magana’s ever shifting solo sound. It’s a gorgeous standalone document of her evolving creativity and expression. The song shows a more traditionally Indie Rock side to Magana's dreamy Alt. Pop output. It's heartfelt and emotional rock music with ghosts whispering through the walls.

Magana's acclaimed debut 'Golden Tongue' is available for a limited time for £1 - maganarama.bandcamp.com/album/golden-tongue-ep

Praise for "Golden Tongue":
"Beautiful debut...a story of love and sacrifice...Delivers the haunted resilience of someone who has found self-acceptance." - London in Stereo

“Recalling Torres and Sharon Van Etten at their most intimate moments...Magana’s parched vocal is a complete heartbreaker.” - The Line of Best Fit

"With what is just the briefest of snapshot Magana has invited us into her world and in the process created something which feels expansive and breathlessly travelled." - GoldFlakePaint

"Glorious." - Podcart

"Dream folk perfection." - The Deli NYC

“There's something beautiful in finding what you want and demanding it, and Magana perfectly captures that.” - The Grey Estates

“Magana enters the scene guns blazing with the simple request to be the real deal or no deal at all.” - IMPOSE

"Magana’s voice is a lively rasp that emotes a jaded sense of heartbreak spurred by a lover who talks but does not listen." - The Le Sigh

“Through music I have learned the shape of desire – contoured and faceted, with the texture of velvet and the sheen of spilt oil on the blacktop. In Magana I feel it again.” - Collapse Board

"Golden Tongue has enough range of emotion and musical variety to engage the attention from start to finish, and it feels like a journey in a way that many full albums fail to...It sounds like the birth of a new star." - Musos' Guide

"Devastatingly beautiful." - The Revue

“Jeni’s voice is entirely her own.” - For the Rabbits

"I truly can’t wait to hear what she does next." - VAMP

"A whisper in your ear, bedroom acoustics performer who has broken out from the background of being a session musician to taking centre stage." - Bearded Magazine

"When I hear a song like this, I start believing there is a primal source of strength that music, but only some music, manages to channel into the outer world. Magana does that." - Beautiful Freaks

"I could see her (right now) opening up for St. Vincent on her next tour. Yes that should happen. It feels right to me. After that I want to hear Magana's full length." - American Pancake

"Fragile and delicate, playing like a morning after some traumatic event, smells and sounds and phantom feelings wisping their way into the present, leaving the narrator to grasp whatever negligible weight they still hold." - Wake the Deaf

"Golden Tongue shows us someone who has spent years singing from other people’s hymn sheets finding her own voice, and it’s the voice of a confident artist who is capable of expressing both great frustration and great tenderness in a very compelling way. One minute, she sounds introverted and retiring; the next, she’s lashing out angrily at those who would talk over her." - God Is In The TV

Track Name: Pages
Reams of forgotten words lie in a sheet on the floor

Covering years that I don’t remember anymore

They’re just pages of a story that no one will hear

Thousands of characters and I don’t remember their names

So my best friends and enemies are starting to look all the same

They’re just pages of a story that no one will hear anymore

Because I looked back and decided that past’s a poison tree

And it doesn’t belong to anyone but me

Because they’d twist the facts; they’d tell it wrong

They’d make it short but my story’s long

And I’d rather no one knows, no one sees

That way I can forget anything that I want to

Reams of forgotten words lie in a sheet on the floor

What if I burned that house down

Well it won’t be there anymore

We’re just pages of a story that now no one will hear
