Summary: Treading finely between synth heavy dance music and modern indie, Bombay Bicycle Club return in some style.
4.3good

With the first new music destined for the forth studio album So Long, See You Tomorrow, Crouch End four-piece Bombay Bicycle Club return with a real anthem in the form of new single ‘Carry Me’.

With rumours that Bombay had moved away from a conventional guitar band, ‘Carry Me’ seems to only confirm that the group are trying change their sound – however, this track is a perfect half-way home between dance and indie.

‘Carry Me’ kick starts with a wonky offbeat drums, catchy synth and singer and Jack Steadman’s muddled vocals. The track grows in both instruments and creativity; perhaps becoming a greater commercial sound that what was provided on A Different Kind of Fix – with ‘Carry Me’ destined for nightclubs around the country.

Whilst ‘Carry Me’ has certainly whet the appetite for their forthcoming album, this track is certainly on the brink of moving Bombay Bicycle Club from a festival-known name to a household name.
