Oklahoma’s PawPaw Rod came through with his highly anticipated first release of 2023 with “Is It Magic?” and it is some of the purest soul music you can get. He asks the listeners “Is It Magic?,” when his fans should be asking the same thing to him.
The track is a beautiful blend of '60s soul and modern production, with PawPaw Rod's smooth vocal delivery taking center stage. The track adds an extra sense of nostalgia that makes you feel like you're listening to a classic record. His vocal layering is incredible, and it's easy to get lost in the sonic landscape he creates.
Lyrically, "Is It Magic?" is a playful exploration of the artist's perception of a perfect girl — someone he sees as magical. PawPaw Rod's relatable songwriting speaks to anyone who has ever been swept off their feet by that special someone. With a track as stunning as this, it's clear that PawPaw Rod is a musical force to be reckoned with, and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.
