UPDATE: Magistrates were one of the first bands we ever wrote about back in September 2008, and we were gutted to hear of their breakup a year later in 2009. Now it sounds like they've returned, playing their first shows in nearly two years, starting with their triumphant re-entry into society August 25th at London's The Queen of Hoxton. Three years on their original demos sound every bit as vital and refreshing as they did in 2008, especially their first (and only) single "Make This Work". Not bad for a bedroom demo. Enjoy the track and our original post on the band below.

Our love for Magistrates runs way deep, and it's been that way ever since their completely untouchable three-track demo found it's way into these hands last January. Six months have come and gone since then, and Magistrates have still got stars in our eyes and a fire burning betwixt our loins, even moreso since their debut single "Make This Work" started tearing up Radio 1 this summer. Presented untouched and unchanged from it's original bedroom-recorded demo form, it's a sexy falsetto-heavy pop jam that makes you wish Prince fronted Klaxons more often. Thanks once again to Abeano and XL for the hook up, how we love them so.
