Formed in 2014, Philadelphia rock band Sheer Mag is a bold combination of ’70s rock and punk ethos. In January 2015, Rolling Stone featured the band as one of “10 New Artists You Need To Know,” describing them as “a gang of punks with a not-so-secret love of Seventies classic rock.”
Both brazen and discrete, loud yet precise, familiar but never quite like this, Sheer Mag crept up to channel our social and political moment with grit and groove. In their music both painfully urgent and spiritually timeworn, Sheer Mag speak to a modern pain: to a people who too feel their flame on the verge of being extinguished, yet choose to burn a bit brighter in spite of that threat.
In their debut LP, the band rolls up their sleeves, takes to the streets, and demands recompense for a tradition of inequity that’s poisoned our world. “Need to Feel Your Love,” makes their first full-length declaration of light seen just beyond our darkness. Spoken plainly, without shame: It is love.
