Magna Carda was a very fitting Artist of the Month for February, a month generally associated with love. The band has a thing for love songs and managed to slip several into the new album.

“We’ve always made, like literally, every song we make is a cool love song and we had to stop ourselves,” producer Chris Beale said with a laugh last month. 

“We just want everything to be about love,” singer Megan “Megz” Tillman agreed. “I mean, it’s naturally one of the easiest things to write about for some reason and talk about. And I think that’s just in human nature, so we have to kind of stop ourselves. In my dream world I would be a singer, but I can’t sing, so I feel like naturally I’m more inclined to neo, mellow kind of stuff.”

Much love to Magna Carda for sharing some time with us this month.
