‘Epiphany’ is the debut EP by The Blood Magnetic, a new baroque-pop-indie collaboration between singer-songwriter Matt Tinsley and multi-instrumentalist Chris Donald.
Built on classic Christmas lyrics, adapted by English poet David Burton, ‘Epiphany’ overturns the familiar, the commercial and the saccharine into a rush of strange, ugly beauty: the kind of Christmas-themed music that Low, or the Mountain Goats, or Wovenhand might all tune in to.
A year-long project brought to life by a cast of collaborators, ‘Epiphany’ is guitars brawling with pianos, violins and drums: the mundane getting rough with the mysterious: the gorgeous sound of the sky falling in.

The Blood Magnetic
The Blood Magnetic are Birmingham multi-instrumentalist Chris Donald and London singer-songwriter Matt Tinsley. Along with a cast of collaborators, they create bright, baroque pop, where layers of glacial synths and rattling guitars vibrate with life.
