Bombay Bicycle Club// O2 Academy/ 15.3.14

As part of their latest genre-defining evolution, Bombay Bicycle Club return to Liverpool’s O2 Academy on 15th March with new album So Long, See You Tomorrow.

Having been graced with a UK #1 album chart position and an accolade of high praise reviews (NME: 7/10, Pitchfork: 7.7/10), it’s evident that this album has already become significant to their growing explosive career.

Taking influences from time spent travelling, songwriter Jack Steadman has indeed crafted an international album. Infusions of Asian and Middle Eastern cultures alongside indulgence in a wider array of sounds such as R&B and sampling have been part of one of the most daring changes the band have made to date.

Sonic explorations ranging from lush acoustics present on songs such as ‘Ivy & Gold’, indie dance pop on A Different Kind of Fix’s ‘Shuffle’ and the thundering yet quirky indie rock of ‘Evening/Morning’ demonstrates how the band are beginning to define themselves more than ever as artists.

An eclectic live setup featuring singer/songwriters Rae Morris and Liz Lawrence truly represents how the band has a stronger arsenal than ever before. This tour will be quite unlike anything that has been seen from the band to date – a particularly strong undertaking.
