The Magic Numbers

Album Title: The Magic Numbers
Release Date: July 5, 2005
Genre: Rock
The British music press have already sunk their claws into the Magic Numbers, and the quartet (made of two brother-sister sets) is consequently getting heavy global attention. They've been compared to the Mamas and the Papas numerous times, but the Magic Numbers don't have all that much in common with the '60s pop act. Loose production, fuzzy guitars, and slack bass are what set the backdrop for the tinny vocals of lead singer Romeo Stodart. The major selling point for the Mamas and the Papas-likeness is the multidimensional, harmonized sound that comes from Stodart's sister Michele and percussionist Angela Gannon singing back-up - although the band has said that they suspect their not-so-slim looks are the real reason for the comparison. The ballads ("This Love", "Wheels On Fire") are just as good as the stompers ("Love Me Like You", "Long Legs"), and for the best vocal interplay on the record, check the country-tinged "Try".
