Bombay Bicycle Club // Carry Me - Single

The new comeback from single, titled 'Carry Me', is as fantastic as it sounded during their magnificent Reading Festival set way back in 2012. It feels a long time coming, and their downtime is justified and well, well worth the wait.

This is one of my favourite shots of the band - Jack seems happy!

The production from Jack Steadman is clear to the ear, with his solo soundcloud work shining through from the very first sample. The double use of bass guitar is really neat work, an element they have always strived in - I always test earphones or bass with one of their songs, 'Evening/Morning'. This may just about replace that song.

This is joyous. If you have time, take a look on YouTube for other gems that are to feature on the album, such as 'It's Alright Now' and 'Feel'. They sound fabulous, but for now, listen to their latest effort below. It is worth a mention that the interactive video for this is ace, and can be found at

So, I am on the Burst radio, and The Verse // University

In an interesting turn of events, I am on the radio - with a yet to be decided air time and show name - and it is recorded and loads of fun. Look out for news on that in the next week or so.

Also, I am now (actively) writing for The Verse. It is a great paper with an equally great team. I've already had the chance to interview a what-I-call 'big band', Fenech Soler, and look forward to writing up an article based upon that. I will post links to my articles I post there on here, as well as continuing my multiple sites independent of my work for The Verse.

I cannot wait for the future.
