Gently stepping away from their stupendous acoustic album, Flaws, the Crouch End band Bombay Bicycle Club are readying themselves for a brand new effort. A Different Kind of Fix, due for a U.K. release in August 29th, will likely have a return to their catchy ways. For the latest, they called in producer Ben Allen, who’s worked with the Animal Collective and Deerhunter. In celebration, the single “Shuffle” has made its debut. With piano keys dancing on strings and Jack Steadman’s vocals traveling through corkscrews to meet back up with itself, it will take you far away from where you began. You’ll happily tap your feet down whichever street is nearest, because like the single’s album art denotes, they’ll be filled with life.
(The Shuffle single is available now from Universal Island Records)
