Bombay Bicycle Club: “Ivy and Gold”


Continuously impressed by these Londoners I am.  Previous sounds have been robust, downright ragged thrills upon the ear, and they were truly lovely. But now Bombay Bicycle Club has a new collection releasing mid-July over the sea, and this time it’s gonna be an entirely acoustic effort, something they’ve been planning to do for a while now.  The two advance songs from the full-length titled Flaws, (to be released the 1st week July) are some skip-along treats for your sunshiny afternoons.  “Ivy and Gold” is simple, but takes the wonderful vocals of Mr. Jack Steadman and Jamie MacColl and wagon-trains them to a lazy ride through the clouds.  The title track “Flaws” features the adorably named Lucy Rose (she’s been touring with them too) with her tender backing vocals and Steadman on a roof, overlooking a English garden.  It’s all a giant wake-up call to the Yanks from NME’s Best Band of 2010.  They’re really something.  Take this chance to get to know them.

Apparently, this video for “Flaws” is the 1st of 11 accompanying clips to go with all 11 tracks.  So stay tuned!
