The Magic Numbers are Ealings' kind-hearted indie pop band, and they’re back with their fourth record (which is also their first since 2010), entitled 'Alias'. "E.N.D." is the second single to be released next to the record, a smooth jam fronted by bandleader Romeo Stodart and a hell of a lot of string swells. It's available on 7" alongside a b-side clled "End Of The World"

There’s something very, very naff about Magic Numbers. Their influences aren’t that far away from loads of bands the hipsters ears are drawn towards (Fleetwood Mac, Mamas and Papas etc) but it goes very wrong as soon as they open their mouths. You should listen to the first track here. Its so late ‘70’s chicken-in-a-basket that it hurts. Think The Dooley’s or Liquid Gold complete with screeching disco strings. The pre-chorus bit has something of the Odyssey about it but thats it for positives. On the flip they do ‘End of the World’, a cheesy harmonized run through of the Skeeter Davis weeper performed in a kind of social club croon. Surely one of the very worst bands on the planet, nothing will prepare you for how bad this is.
