Mercury Prize nominated and multi-platinum London quartet, The Magic Numbers, are today sharing the studio-shot video for ‘Sweet Divide’, off of their upcoming album ‘Outsiders’.
New album drops May 11th.
I run to the world of unknowns, with nothing in the pocket of tools – unadjusted, unable.
With little habits and limited articulation in subjects, I followed you.
Ignorant and profound – young and deaf in self assurance – crawled, I crawled.
Then you stopped, to look at me, on the floor of life, no strength of legs.
Then you turned away. Forgotten me. I didn’t see your face, but maybe you smirked at my predicament.
Don’t be cruel.
I’m yours, always.
The hard enchantment of rock that is ‘Sweet Divide’ throws back the urges to that vampire cave we want to hide within (yep, that one). And sometimes we just need a nudge. A calculated and significant assertion of a declaration – from without, and from within.
We’re weak. Aren’t we all, sometimes? Most of the time?
Let’s embrace it.
The awesome song and band keeps the ground and pound of soul, on the front burner.
Kudos, gang. Kudos.
The Magic Number consist of: Romeo Stodart, Michele Stodart, Angela Gannon, and Sean Gannon.
