“…Eric & Magill’s best sonic attribute is the beauty of its songs.” – Milwaukee Magazine

Ryan Weber and Eric Osterman, who make up the duo Eric & Magill are excited to announce the release of “Tightrope,” available today on all major streaming services, and on iTunes with the pre-order of their forth coming fourth album, Peach Colored Oranges (out May 12). The two have a very special connection, that was fused by the space and being in different geographic locations and timezones.

“Tightrope” penned by Weber is a sharp reflection on the fleeting nature of the modern world. Weber went from living on the side of a mountain in a remote desert region of Kenya, while in the Peace Corp, to a high rise Washington D.C. apartment. He went from relying on rainwater to drink, to all the luxuries on earth, and the high pressure of modern existence. This sharp contrast between these two environments, left him feeling it could all go in a blink of an eye – or like he was walking on a “Tightrope.”

“Eric & Magill remind me of early 2000s dream pop bands from Arts & Crafts Records including Broken Social Scene and Stars.” – Ear Buddy

This album found Ryan and Eric in the closest proximity to each other in the life of their musical partnership, traveling and transferring ideas, the short distance between Washington D.C. and Brooklyn. The closeness is evident in the sound of the album. It has a warmth and intimacy to it where their previous offerings had space and openness. Prior albums (2014’s In This Light, 2013’s Night Singers and 2010’s All Those I Know) from the duo featured collaborations with members of the Dirty Projectors, Sylvan Esso, Owen, Volcano Choir, Shearwater, The Promise Ring, Delgados and more. With Peach Colored Oranges they not only swapped their electric guitars for acoustics, but trimmed down the number of guests on the album. By stripping back these elements the two were able to weave their signature dream pop into a fresh acoustic kaleidoscope, from “In Our Bubbles,” an ethereal dream pop song peppered with strings, gentle horns and harmonies, to “I Could Have Been a Painter” that finds power in the simplicity of a voice and an acoustic guitar at the start of the song, ending with a pleasant sweeping surprise of lush strings and piano.

“Weber – who has also played in Decibully and the Promise Ring – and the Brooklyn-based Osterman have perfected an electropop formula that effortlessly transcends the distance between them.” – Rolling Stone
