Don’t really know much about Magic Eye other than that they’re from Edinburgh, U.K. and make some dreamy lo-fi pop music. Flamin’ Teenage reminds me a lot of that scene from “The Beach” with Leonardo DiCaprio, when he falls in love with that girl and then makes out with her underwater with the phytoplankton swimming around them while ambient club music was playing. How 90′s.
Unfortunately the island where “The Beach” was filmed is no longer there, it was destroyed by the 2004 Indian Earthquake and Tsunami. My professor for linear wave theory showed us a simulation he created showing the island’s destruction. I guess that’s what this song is about for me – all good things must come to an end at some point in time, but you cherish them while they last – just like Leo did when he made out with that hot french girl.
