Bombay Bicycle Club
Another new band for me and I’m glad I stumbled across them. Bombay Bicycle Club is an English indie rock band from Crouch End, London, consisting of Jack Steadman (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Jamie MacColl (guitar), Suren de Saram (drums) and Ed Nash (bass). They are guitar-fronted and have experimented with different genres, including folk, electronica, world music and indie rock.
Also, their name comes from the restaurant chain of the same name.
I love their different approach to song-writing and it’s unique these days to hear of success from an almost experimental out-look to popular music. ‘Always Like This’ is a perfect example of a guitar band doing something different. The bass and guitar lines are so catchy and infectious. It was the bass line which prompted me to do this Amazing Bass! post – you’ll love this one…
