Bombay Bicycle Club – So Long, See You Tomorrow Review

Bombay Bicycle Club – So Long, See You Tomorrow Review

Welcome to the beautiful weird world of Bombay Bicycle Club. Their latest album, So Long, See You Tomorrow, is one of the first top albums of the year. It even topped the UK Album Charts! So, lets cut the crap and dive straight into the beautiful album!

Take for example album opener Overdone, (whose title is misleading by the way) with its repetitive high-pitched melody, cowbell, classic guitar riff in the second half of the song and a choir-section; all squeezed in just over 3 and a half minutes.

Many radio stations picked up on lead single Carry Me, one of the most joyful and upbeat tracks on the album. I still believe they sing Dugarry! Dugarry! Dugarry!* though…
The band go on a little hip-hop trip on Home By Now, while slowing down for the piano-laden, ballad-like intro in Whenever, Wherever.

Luna, the band’s successful second single, is a prime example of indie-pop at it’s best; melodic, anthemic, aahoooh!
While the exotic Indian influenced゠Feel, powered with a sexy riff and ‘stuck-in-your-head-for-days’ chorus, is゠one of the album’s most interesting pieces.

*Not familiar with the living legend that is Christophe Dugarry? Wiki and YouTube to the rescue!

I don’t think that Bombay Bicycle Club believe in focussing on just one genre. With So Long, See You Tomorrow, the Crouch End quartet provide a delightful mix of genres and styles.
And it’s quite clear that this new inspirational approach paid off!

Converted to dEUS-ism in 2001. Keen on screaming Friday Friday Friday once a week on Twitter. Might convince you not to talk about U2.
