With their critically acclaimed third album, ‘A Different Kind of Fix’ crashing into the top ten of the charts (at number six), Bombay Bicycle Club release one of the record’s stand out tracks, ‘Lights Out, Words Gone’, as a single on October 17th 2011.
The album captures the sound of a band effortlessly progressing and innovating at a startling rate and ‘Lights Out, Words Gone’ is a case in point, as it makes common cause with chillwave via looped vocal harmonies, rhythmic hooks and dewy-fresh Balearic guitars.
‘Lights Out, Words Gone’ follows in the groove-fuelled footsteps of previous single, ‘Shuffle’ that was A-listed at Radio 1 and with a series of knock-out festival performances this summer to an ever growing legion of fans – including Glastonbury, Latitude, Reading & Leeds - BBC have been making the summer of 2011 their own.
In a little over three years, the band have released three LP’s – an extraordinary and increasingly rare feat in the 21st century music industry. From the teenage indie kicks of their debut; to the sparse, timeless folk of last summer’s top ten album, ‘Flaws’ (nominated for an Ivor Novello Award); the quartet open a new and beguiling chapter with, ‘A Different Kind of Fix’, one that cements their place at the very forefront of British bands in 2011.

Jack Steadman – vocals, guitars
