POP: PICK OF THE WEEK

The Magic Numbers

Co-headlining this tour with the very complimentary Hal from Ireland (who have a single out now on Rough Trade), , a hirsute boy-girl quartet based in London and signed to Heavenly Records, look set to be one of the breakthrough acts of the year. And, indeed, in among the artpunk and lad-rock obsessed bands currently clogging up the London scene, they're a breath of fresh air, plying dreamy tunes that meld country rock and folk with a smidgen of jazzy vibes. Their trump card is a line in beautifully constructed harmonies, one of the main reasons why their live tickets are so sought after.
