The New Magic is Psych/Space Rock artist hailing from Oslo, Norway. Spearheaded by the brilliant multi-instrumentalist Martin van Houtum (whom some may recognize from groups such as Den Kosmiske Overorden, Zenon, Wind, and The Abaia Magic). His debut album, 'Bird's Eye View' has been very well received by critics and fans alike. 'The New Magic' seems to be a great mix of lush electronic soundscapes and gentle psychedelia.

We'll need you to tweak the biography per the guidelines here: https://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=122381

Everything after the first two sentences should be re-written to reflect influences, style, album releases, etc., but with the more subjective descriptions ("brilliant", for instance) removed and used only for the reviews. The bio doesn't have to be huge, but should give the artist's pertinent information.

The New Magic is Psych/Space Rock artist hailing from Oslo, Norway. Spearheaded by the multi-instrumentalist Martin van Houtum, (whom some may recognize from groups such as Den Kosmiske Overorden, Zenon, Wind, and The Abaia Magic) they have released one album to date, 'Bird's Eye View'. A mix of Psychadelic Soundscapes and Norwegian Jazz musicians of old. Influences include Brian Eno, Dungen, Ghosts of Jupiter, Terry Riley, Brian and Dennis Wilson, and many older Norwegian Jazz musicians such as Erlend Apheseth and Christian Meaas Svendsen. 

That should be better....

Thank you; if you don't mind I'll make just a couple spelling and format adjustments, but otherwise this works and I'll take them to the team.
