The Magic Numbers

The Magic Numbers? The band opening for Bright Eyes in NJ two times the same week? Some research reveals that this British band is signed to a major and has NME on their side….

“If the summer of 2005 was your ‘mellowest’ to date, the Magic Numbers probably had something to do with it. Two parts Beach Boys, one part Mamas and Papas, a dash of McCartney and a pinch of Leonard Cohen – all slow-baked under the mellow Trinidad sun – the Magic Numbers are undeniably the happiest band in music, their self-titled debut album was nominated for the 2005 Mercury Music Prize.”

The Onion says, “…The Magic Numbers, a much-fêted new British quartet that’s been compared to the sunshine pop and cosmic Americana of The Mamas And The Papas and Crosby, Stills & Nash. The band’s eponymous debut sounds earthy and real, in stark contrast to the neo-new-wave that’s been dominating modern rock for the past two years. But The Magic Numbers may be ascending too quickly, given what they have to offer.
