The Magic Numbers
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. Their sophomore effort, Those the Brokes, arrived in 2006, followed by the Undecided EP in the summer of 2007. The Magic Numbers are currently putting the finishing touches to their third album, due for release in spring 2010.
