about

Featuring "Kaboom" and "Pretty Little Ball," Magneto Effect's debut EP, Nothing, is available on vinyl and for download. Be sure to check out the videos below.

"Pretty Little Ball"

“This stylish, theatrical music video for Minneapolis alt-rock quintet Magneto Effect's "Kaboom" was directed by local filmmaker Justin Staggs [Foo Fighters, NOFX], and features the contributions of plenty of local talent. The boisterous track is lifted off of the band's forthcoming EP, Nothing, which is due to be released in early 2014, both digitally and on vinyl. The cinematic clip perfectly captures the scope and tenor of the track itself, and serves notice that we should be hearing plenty more from Magneto Effect in the upcoming year.”

Track Name: Awake
Watchin’ Price is Right
So anaesthetized tonight
Feigned reality
There’s nothing left but empty

Awake
Awake
Awaken from the dream
What you see
Is more than what it seems
Awake
Awake
Awaken from the dream
Until you do you’re only…

Addicts, pimps, and freaks
Containment on the city streets
Guns to separate
Privilege from the senseless

Awake
Awake
Awaken from the dream
What you see
Is more than what it seems
Awake
Awake
Awaken from the dream
Until you do you’re only…

Too much time to sit around
I’m lost in the cracks I haven’t found
I haven’t found
Somewhere there’s a place
Where all the plastic wrap is draped around my
Vacant mind

Awake
Awake
Awaken from the dream
What you see
Is more than what it seems
Awake
Awake
Awaken from the dream
Until you do you’re only…
Track Name: Embrace
Fill your cup with hate
Fill your cup with kind
To reiterate your peace of mind, in my mind
With your hopes and fears and your drawn blinds
You can hide inside these swollen tears and unwind

And I feel
And I feel
I feel like I don’t belong
And I feel
And I feel
I feel like we don’t belong

Every leap of faith, a parade of lies
Every fake “hello” and “how are you?”; Never mind
With a voice of praise you will lead the blind
While a phrase replays you disengage inside

And I feel
And I feel
I feel like I don’t belong
And I feel
And I feel
I feel like we don’t belong

Embrace this infected life
Engaged in the rage that pulses inside me
I feel but I don’t belong
I thrill but it’s not for long…

Your face has been placed in a permanent sigh
Hold it this way to embrace your demise
And you’re here
And you’re gone
Track Name: Kaboom
dreamt i was an atom bomb
waiting for the detonating spark
counting down the seconds 'til
the energy is left to fight its way outside

i'm the bomb
oh i'm the bomb
i'm the bomb
oh i'm the bomb
awakening
awakening
oh atom bomb
oh atom bomb

turning to a glowing sphere
with light that swells and burns up all the air around me
my body starts to disappear
evaporating all that i'm expanding into

and i'm the bomb
oh i'm the bomb
i'm the bomb
oh i'm the bomb
releasing heat
releasing heat
oh atom bomb
oh atom bomb

...and what goes up
must come down again
so therefore what breaths fire
must breath in again

the vacuum in its place
is tearing out my lungs
and this my fall from grace
can never be undone

i feel electrons letting go
ancient bonds that knew the singularity
i see the waves of photons flow
as time contracts to infinite compression

the atom bomb
oh atom bomb
the atom bomb
oh atom bomb
is killing me
is killing me
and i'm the bomb
oh i'm the bomb

whoa......................
whoa......................
yeah.............. yeah yeah
yeah.............. yeah yeah
Track Name: By The Sea
as the wind takes me over
be a tree rooted down
reaching deep into the soil
without a sound
without a sound

in the sun i feel better
branches dance in the breeze
gotta pull myself together
before the freeze
before the freeze

and the time
slips by
each day

such a lovely feeling
i can hardly say

as the wind blows me backward
like a reed i pretend
with my heart beating faster
i will bend
and i will bend

by the sea i feel better
current turns me around
feel the chill of the water
cool me down
cool me down

and the water leads
the way

and where the current wants to take me
i can't say

but the sea takes me over
with a terrible sound
feel the waves crash around me
sweep my feet
off the ground

by the sea...
by the sea...

the tide carries me away
out to sea

lost at sea in bad weather
sky is angry and gray
holding fast to the rudder
as i'm carried away

the waves tip me over
eddies spin me around
and i long for the days when i
had my feet
on the ground
Track Name: Pretty Little Ball
they jingle and they dangle
like trophies on your boots
now get back on your horse
and straighten out your noose

well great balls fire
they're the last you'll ever have
when the little ball breaks
but don't be sad

release your energy
release your energy

pretty little ball
breaking on the ground
breaking on the ground
you're a pretty little ball
breaking on the ground
breaking on the ground

I heard you say it's lonely
oh so lonely at the top
with your tricky trigger finger poised
to make it pop

you won't take no shit
from any tiny two-bit hood
it's okay
you're just misundestood
(little miss understood)

release your energy
release your energy

pretty little ball
breaking on the ground
breaking on the ground
you're a pretty little ball
breaking on the ground
breaking on the ground

(Edith Bunker Solo)

"hey"

release your energy
release your energy

pretty little ball
breaking on the ground
breaking on the ground
you're a pretty little ball
breaking on the ground
breaking on the ground

you're a pretty little ball
you're a pretty little ball
you're a pretty little ball
you're a pretty little ball
you're a pretty little ball
Track Name: Fire It Up
a stark
transition
loading up
ammunition
big fire
idol virgin
lost in
subversion

and the holy rollers stand
at the edge of the pyre
while the sacred light burns bright
it's time to ground the wire

plug it in fire it up
plug it in fire it up
plug it in fire it up
plug it in

clean slate
scar tissue
clean break
first issue
back it up
to the middle
sign reads
like a riddle

and the pigs are squealing loud
at the foot of the spire
they awaken from their trance
just before they trip the wire

plug it in fire it up
plug it in fire it up
plug it in fire it up
plug it in

too late
your intrusion
isolate
the illusion
radiate
this cancer
i'm the soul
but you're the answer

now the blind see through the scam
and the make believe attire
got no time to hesitate
when you're hanging from a wire

plug it in fire it up
plug it in fire it up
plug it in fire it up
plug it in
Track Name: Flight Plan
fear of falling
losing sense of pitch and yaw
engines stalling
can't break this fundamental law

sometimes bad apples
have to fall down from the tree

<it's bringing me down>
falling
<falling>
falling
<gravity>
gravity pulling down

falling
<falling>
falling
<gravity>
gravity pulls me down

falling
<falling>
falling
<gravity>
gravity pulls me down

fatal attraction
though a weaker force cannot be found
speed increases
and i start to feel weighted down

6 million pounds of thrust
and i could reach escape velocity

if i could only let go

no fuel to make a change
to my trajectory

falling
<falling>
falling
<gravity>
gravity pulling down

falling
<falling>
falling
<gravity>
gravity pulls me down

falling
<falling>
falling
<gravity>
gravity pulls me down

changing direction
becoming weightless as i fall
feels like flying
as i'm dropping like a cannon ball

muscles freezing from
increasing entropy

falling
<falling>
falling
<gravity>
gravity pulling down

down
down

falling
falling
falling down
Track Name: Believe
it looked like you were tangled
in a half pipe hurricaine
asking for a favor
from a scrap yard hobo king
he pointed to his castle
as he took you by the arm
and for the moment a part of you survives

then the ground starts shaking
as the Venus drops her charms

now i believe
in all the things that rescued you
and i can see...
i believe
that dreams were all that pulled you through
and now i see

there behind the curtain
your three penny tragedy
a late night flight to Boston
and a glass of antifreeze

and as the prophets warned
the king is choking at your feet

and now i see
all the things that haunted you
and i believe
i can see
through vision blurred by solitude
now i believe

shaken and disoriented
banished underground
waiting for the verdict but it
isn't that profound

the queen removes your chains
and starts parading you around

now i believe
in all the things that rescued you
and i can see...
that i believe
that dreams were all that pulled you through
and now i see
