Bombay Bicycle Club released their third album, ‘A Different Kind of Fix’ in August 2011 to widespread critical acclaim. In a little over three years, the band have released three LPs – 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); Bombay Bicycle Club 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 2012.

Recorded in Hamburg, London and Atlanta, ‘A Different Kind of Fix’ captures the sound of a band effortlessly progressing and innovating at a startling rate. Guitars are firmly plugged back in for album number three, but added to the mix with potent results are synths, sampled loops, layered vocals from all four band members and washes of reverb throughout.

The sheer breadth of styles and range of influences on display across this Bombay Bicycle Club record is startling.

First single, ‘Shuffle’, emerges from a looped piano sample to burst forth into one of Bombay Bicycle Club‘s biggest songs to date, as the piano loop recruits gargantuan drums and bass that march to an epic chorus on their way to a house break of Balearic proportions.

Album opener, ‘How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep’ is all marble steeped vocal loops and breathy samples, which are also used to devastating effect on ‘Lights Out, Words Gone’: a song of such rarefied beauty and rhythmic hooks, one imagines a lost, codeine-fuelled Talking Heads album.

Don’t miss Bombay Bicycle Club performing live on stage at The Olympia Theatre in Dublin on Monday the 30th of April 2012.
