Live Footage: The Cinematic Sounds and Visuals of Boise, ID-based Electronic Act Magic Sword

Earlier this year, the masked producer and his masked collaborators partnered with Steve Angello’s Size Records for Volume One’s follow up, a series of episodic EPs, which are accompanied by a comic that tells another chapter in the story of The Keeper with the first of the EPs, Legend was released earlier this year and the second of the series will be released later this year. The act recently appeared on GoPro’s Done In One series, and not only does it give you a great sense of the act’s incredibly dramatic live set, it also gives you a good sense of why the act has started to receive the attention they have — their sound manages to bear a resemblance to John Carpenter’s futuristic soundtrack and to French electronic act Chateau Marmont, as their sound possesses a cinematic quality; in fact, it sounds as though it should be part of a post-apocalyptic/retro-futuristic thriller.
