Romeo and Co return for more magic
Central Station are once again playing host to The Magic Numbers after a sold out show two years ago. On Wednesday 25th November they will be heading to Wrexham as part of a tour to preview new material from their forthcoming third album release.
Led by Trinidad-born singer/songwriter Romeo, London’s Magic Numbers blend the melodic experimentation of artists like the Flaming Lips and David Axelrod with the sweet harmonies of ’60s pop groups like the Lovin’ Spoonful and the Mamas & the Papas. Romeo began making music with drummer Sean almost immediately upon moving to the U.K. from New York City. They were eventually joined by Romeo’s sister Michele on bass and Sean’s sister Angela on percussion and melodica. The group signed with Heavenly Records in 2004 and released their critically acclaimed, self-titled debut the following year. The group’s sophomore effort, Those the Brokes, arrived in 2006, followed by the Undecided EP in the summer of 2007.
The band explain:
“We are currently putting the finishing touches to our third album, due for release in spring next year, but we really wanted to get back out on the road and play for everyone now, rather than waiting for months and months… So… We have put together a nation-wide tour of some of our favourite small pubs and clubs in the UK which runs from mid-November to mid-December.
We’ve written so many new songs and have really had the chance to experiment a lot more in our own studio this time around. We can’t wait to get out there and make this music come alive with you as we’ve had some of our best memories doing shows like these. When everything is up close and personal, the atmosphere can be so intense and beautiful”.
The Magic Numbers have collaborated with some big hitters in the music business including Ed Harcourt, The Chemical Brothers and Travis and gained huge radio support from Jonathon Ross and Dermot O’Leary (with whom they played their first live session for UK radio).
