Brother and sister quartet, The Magic Numbers shot to media attention after selling out London’s 2000-capacity Kentish Town Forum solely on the strength of their ever- growing loyal following, even before their first proper single ‘Forever Lost’ was released, their Mercury Prize nominated self- titled debut The Magic Numbers (2005) entered the Top 10 and reached double-Platinum sales. Further hit singles, ‘Love Me Like You’, ‘Love’s A Game’ and ‘I See You, You See Me’ followed, along with world-wide tours with the likes of Brian Wilson, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Bright Eyes, The Flaming Lips and Sonic Youth. The band caused a stir when they became the first artists to ever walk off of Top of The Pops, refusing to play after a presenter’s uncivil introduction, showing confidence in themselves and that punk rebellious spirit they’ve carried from the very beginning. Tonight they will be previewing songs from their much anticipated fifth album, ‘Outsiders’, due out 11th May on Role Play Records.
“To us, music is everything,” says Romeo (front man and chief songwriter) “Rebel songs’ are about conviction, not wanting to just fall in line, putting your heart and soul into something that you believe in. I think it’s what the people colouring life outside of the lines tend to do which is how we came up with the title Outsiders. Because now is the time for people to be themselves more, and not think so much about fitting into boxes. That’s why the lyrics have a ‘together’ feel: we’re all beautiful fucked-up losers trying to make sense of it all. We’ve always been Outsiders.”
