Band of the Day (9.8.10) Bombay Bicycle Club

8 Sep

BOD (9.8.10) Bombay Bicycle Club

These boys have a knack for acoustic, folky indie rock. Their simple songs are emotional and classic. I know they’re not new, but they also deserve to be the Band of the Day. Anything to spread great music. The boys are from Crouch End, London and they are heavily influenced by that Fleet Foxes type sound, and the shimmering voice of Jack Steadman is amazing. There are harmonies that rival those of CSN and there are those moments that Steadman stands alone and he bares his soul for us. I love these guys and it’s time they get the love they deserve here in the US. Thank you to Arizona Turk for turning us on to this amazing band.

Hear:
“My God”

“Word By Word” – Quite possibly a candidate for song of the year. Steadman’s voice rivals Nick Drake and Conor Oberst
