Bombay Bicycle Club

This past February, North London’s Bombay Bicycle Club released their fourth album in five years, So Long, See You Tomorrow, through Vagrant Records. According  to frontman and songwriter Jack Steadman, crafting the album took longer than usual. Most of the songs were written during his travels through India, Turkey, and Tokyo, as well as the UK and the Netherlands. Now that the album is complete, Steadman is pleased with the results, “I feel like we’ve found the balance between making it interesting and intelligent, but also not highbrow or elitist.” Download “Luna” from So Long, See You Tomorrow and learn more about Bombay Bicycle Club at their Official Website, “Like” them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter.
