Highly anticipated and highly upbeat, Bombay Bicycle Club have returned with an album that is both nostalgic and new. The songs are catchy and have similar themes running through the album, linking the songs together, in the genre of electro-synth indie rock/pop.
The best songs on this album are ‘Is it real’, ‘Everything else has gone wrong’, and ‘Do you feel loved?’. The songs feel as put together and artistically composed as their previous, and it feels perfect for a comeback to bring fans songs as good as their previous, which is usually a worry after the 6 year break.
I went and saw the band on Monday 27th on a set where they played both their old classics and new material. It was surprising to see the crowd singing as energetically as they were to new songs, ‘I worry bout you’ and ‘Good day’ which were received as energetically as classics such as ‘Feel’ and ‘How can you swallow so much sleep?’. The crowds appreciation of the bands latest album shows that Bombay Bicycle Clubs comeback was an astounding success. Lets hope we don’t have to wait as long for the next album
