Magpie Diaries run us through each track of their debut album

Late last year, when Magpie Diaries released their debut full-length album Sanctuary, we were immediately roped into their heartfelt and hard-hitting sounds. With their blend of soul, blues, rock and country, the band create the kind of music you can’t help but fall in love with.

So now, a couple of months removed from the album’s release, we caught up with the band for a run-down of each track… presented in hand-written notes, of course.

Fresh off the release of their debut full-length album Sanctuary, we caught up with Magpie Diaries for a full, hand-written run-down of each track.
