The Magic Numbers have always drawn on the bedrock, on the root source of pop music.
The band's output to date - some three highly acclaimed studio LPs - is packed with chimming, shimmering, gilded melodies.
So in a way, it's no surprise to see that The Magic Numbers have titled their latest cut 'Roy Orbison'. Named in honour of the warbling pop pioneer, it matches his reverb-laden, heartbreak sound.
Heavenly music as only they know how, you can listen to 'Roy Orbison' below.
