«Throughout this process, I have learned that our darkness can reign upon us, control us, steer us into all different directions, but in the end, it makes us who we are. I found magic within my art because it’s who I am and it made me even more powerful today than I ever was», Joel Christian said to me.
«Dark Magic» is a seven track album that lyrically finds itself as «dark and relatable» set against an upbeat electronic soundscape. «Rise From The Grave» are the forth track on the album.
Overall, «Dark Magic» provides a glimpse into the mind of Joel Christian over the last few years as he has evolved and embraced himself in an authentic and empowering way. The album reminds listeners that even in the darkest of places, you can find yourself through all of it and come out stronger and better at the end. Remarking on the album, Joel Christian states to LGBTQ Music Chart, «’Dark Magic’ makes you want to dance, you feel the electronic sounds pulse through your body, you can hold onto the lyrics and relate – and to me that’s the magic in the purest form».
