Bombay Bicycle Club will release their debut album I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose Island Records in July. After first forming when the band members were just 15, they’ve created something that NME described as the “hottest sound to come from North London for quite some time.” Their energy is raw and has a sort of hazy shoegaze that layers above snarky, mature lyrics and otherwise poppy, jittery vocals. Since winning a competition against The Holloways, they’ve gotten a lot of good press and are producing music that shows a lot of promise.
I think it is absolutely beautiful. Shed a tear at the end of a warm summer’s day at the knowledge that now you’ve experienced it and it was so sweet, you’ll never get it back.
