The Magic Numbers
The Magic Numbers' debut has been ultra hyped back in the UK. You know how the machine keeps bringin 'em, articles in the right places, creating buzz which becomes hype, then the anticipated Capitol Records US release, and blastoff. However, the album is actually really good, and has been a blazing success. The Magic Numbers is marked by a bright array of harmonies and earthy orchestration, all delivered in nearly rapturous voices. Good story, a young guitar playing lad and his friend ask their sisters to join the band, make beautiful family-infused harmonies. Easy to file somewhere between the Mamas and Papas, the Polyphonic Spree and the Arcade Fire. - TK/Pru
