Bombay Bicycle Club is probably one of the most buzzed about bands on this year’s massive CMW bill and they deserve every sweet morsel of attention they are getting. These young fellas from the UK had a seriously awesome 2010 and 2011 is sure to be even bigger and brighter. We are all very lucky to have them here in Toronto this week for CMW and with a reputation for electrifying live shows, this must-see event calls for the Sharpie to make an appearance on your calendar.
They’re set to release their next album this year, and will undoubtedly be playing some tracks from it. Their last album Flaws was acoustically recorded but this latest release will see the return of electric guitars and sped-up rhythms. They snagged the Best New Band award at the 2010 NME Awards up against such talent as The XX, La Roux and Mumford & Sons.
Here’s the vid for one of my favourites off of their debut release, I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose.
