The Magic Numbers are a UK-based four-piece comprising two pairs of brothers and sisters (Romeo and Michele Stodart, Sean and Angela Gannon) who are known for their unique harmonies, melodic hooks, songwriting craftsmanship and their timeless sound.
The band quickly shot to media attention after selling out London’s Kentish Town Forum solely on the strength of their loyal following, before the release of their self-titled 2005 debut album. This record was subsequently nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. The Magic Numbers went on to become one of the nation’s best-loved bands and have toured with the likes of Brian Wilson, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, The Flaming Lips, Sonic Youth, The Who, Morrissey, U2 and Bright Eyes to name a few.
To date, the band have released four successful albums and many of their singles have graced the Top 20 charts including Forever Lost, Love's A Game, Take A Chance, Love Me Like You resulting in over a million album sales worldwide.
The Magic Numbers have famously collaborated with a number of artists, lending their trademark sound and harmonies to the likes of Ed Harcourt, The Divine Comedy, Duke Special and David Kitt. Romeo wrote a song for Jane Birkin’s album ‘Fictions’ and co- wrote ‘Close your eyes’ with the Chemical Brothers for their Grammy-Award-winning album ‘Push The Button’.
If the group aren’t busy in the studio, lead singer and songwriter Romeo Stodart can usually be found providing his effortless guitar playing for artists as diverse as the legendary Jimmy Webb and, most recently, Spritualized, on whose latest album, ‘Sweet Heart Sweet Light’, he features.
The Magic Numbers will be releasing their fifth studio album in the spring of 2018.
Tickets: £14.00 and are available from OFS and online.
