Magic Wands

Swirling new wave sleaze

The story behind the formation of The Magic Wands, AKA Chris and Dexy Valentine, is like the plotline of some lost American literary classic. The first time the two of them met was for five minutes outside a gig in Hollywood in 2006 when Chris was visiting Los Angeles for the weekend. A year later and back in Nashville Chris found a song on MySpace that he listened to repeatedly called ‘Teenage Love’. When he discovered it was a song by Dexy he sent her a message.
