As if by Magic, the Numbers are appearing...

Story: Jack Foley

HOTLY-tipped UK band, The Magic Numbers, have announced a series of headline dates, plus support slots, designed to further their growing reputation.

The four-piece, whose only release to date has been a limited edition 7" which sold out, and who crop up on the new Chemical Brothers album, have been selling out small venues across the capital for some months.

Now, however, the band - comprised of singer, Romeo, his sister, Michele (bass), Sean (drums) and his sister, Angela (percussion, melodica and third vocals) - intend to get much bigger a whole lot quicker.

Dates to look out for include a headline show at the Kentish Town Forum, as well as club dates as Bush Hall and Camden's Barfly, not to mention a number of support slots alongside the likes of Athlete, Doves and The Tears.

In addition, the band will be touring extensively over the next few months, with plenty of UK dates to choose from.

According to the band's website, The Magic Numbers draw inspiration from many sources, including singer songwriters (Cohen, Dylan), 60's harmony groups (Mamas & Papas, Lovin Spoonful), epic rock or such mavericks as David Axelrod.

The band craft a sound which like Flaming Lips or Beck, is coming from everywhere but is uniquely theirs.
