M.A.G.S. is Buffalo-bred, Los Angeles-based artist Elliott Douglas. His style is ever shifting between genres ─ from funky garage to minty alt-pop ─ and you never know exactly what to expect. Songs like “Mvp” and “Hi Tops” zig-zag from visceral, gnarly heavy metal to lo-fi folk-rock, respectively; his musicianship is a marvel to witness, each entry building on the last with refreshing acrobatics.
M.A.G.S. released his first solo record in 2015, an EP called Cellophane, and his self-titled debut full-length arrived two years later. With his new batch of music, an EP titled Lost
Tapes, dropped early 2020, Douglas displays marked growth in vocal prowess, overall, musicality and lyrical bite.
