Bombay Bicycle Club - Always Like This
It seems so long now since the four boys that make up Bombay Bicycle Club took their turn on the pedestal as the saviours of British indie music as mere secondary school kids, that the fact they still haven’t released an album might leave some worrying it all got too much. This single, a taster to their debut album which will finally be released in June of this year, shows they haven’t lost any of the charm and energy that first saw them so hyped, and should banish any such fears. With ‘Always Like This’, they have developed their raw energy and sound and the result is a tantalising four minutes of perfect indie-pop that gets the feet moving and the head nodding, and promises a sunny summer indeed for Bombay Bicycle Club.
