The Magic Numbers have returned with their most confident and compelling album to date, ‘ALIAS’, released August 18th on Caroline International, including their brand new single ‘Shot In The Dark’, released June 23rd.
‘ALIAS’ augments The Magic Numbers’ signature vocal harmonies with a darker, electrifying atmosphere and captures on record the infectious energy of the band’s live performances. The result is a new, powerful sound for the band.
From the dramatically poignant openers ‘Wake Up’ and ‘You K(no)w’ the album builds in intensity, opening out into the string-laden backdrop of the soulful, seductive ‘Thought I Wasn’t Ready’ and the majestic ‘Roy Orbison’.
Written and produced by Romeo Stodart, new single ‘Shot In The Dark’ is bursting with existential angst and animalistic guitars that echo Neil Young’s work with Crazy Horse.
This will be Mercury Prize nominees The Magic Numbers’ fourth album. Following its release the band will be touring the UK this autumn, including a show at The Forum in London on September 25th.
The Magic Numbers are: Romeo Stodart (guitar and vocals), Michele Stodart (bass guitar and vocals), Angela Gannon (keyboards, vocals and percussion) and Sean Gannon (drums).
