‘Superb what MORAN MAGAL presented with ‘UNDER YOUR BED’. Between Dark Romantic, Gothic and Progressive Sound, there is a lot on this album for a long-lasting enjoyment’
MORAN MAGAL is emerging on European stages with a Dark/Epic Rock- Folk/Metal that is all their own, easily bridging multiple ages and stages. As Moran's hands glide easily over the piano in an extension of her body, her unique vocal depth merge light with dark, pain with humour, and honesty from the intimacy of her soul with stirring melodies. Meandering between Marcos Feminella’s and Ishay Sommer’s strong, punchy drum/bass section — which is often lead by Moran's powerful piano— and a wonderfully concerted, vibrantly shimmering dialog between Thomas Kock's virtuoso guitar and Shir-Ran Yinon’s magical violin, Moran Magal takes the listener’s hand and pulls them into a vivid world created to get hooked on in a snap.
