Magic Arm presents 'Is History', taken from his forthcoming album, Images Rolling, out on 3rd June. For this second album, the multi-instrumentalist has swapped the rattling electro loops of his 2009 debut, Make Lists, Do Something, for a more natural, refined sound with calming strings, heavenly choral vocals and a jingling beat. The right balance of reverb establishes a stunning atmosphere and gives Magic Arm its own style.

Once branded by Samuel Beam of Iron and Wine as "the master of the loop pedal," Marc Rigelsford, the talent behind Magic Arm, has thrown so much heart and creativity into this track. The chorus, "Pledge high, pledge low and all in between, and love is history," sums up this determined hunger.
