The Magic Numbers are back. Prepare to be amazed.
Exultant harmonies, sweeping melodies, driving rock and gorgeous ballads: The Magic Numbers are past masters at making music that lifts the spirits. Fourth time around, though, it is time to cast a new spell. ‘Alias‘ is The Magic Numbers as we always dreamed they could sound; heavier, sweeter, richer, deeper than ever before, a classic British songwriting band at the height of their powers.
There are two sets of brothers and sisters in The Magic Numbers, the Stodarts (vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Romeo and bassist and multi-instrumentalist Michele) and the Gannons (drummer Sean and vocalist and keyboardist Angela). “Creatively, it does divide into two sibling camps,” says Romeo, “But within that there’s another two camps, the boys and the girls.” Romeo and Michele work closely on arrangements, while Sean and Angela come into their own in performance. “The Gannon’s really love playing, and for this album, we wanted to capture that energy, something that can be so elusive in the studio, just getting to that almost unconscious state of playing and not thinking.”
If ‘Alias‘ had its roots in an identity crisis, it is one that is resolved by the music itself. “What can we do except try and make something that we love? That’s everything we can do.”
