Bombay Bicycle Club

Bombay Bicycle Club play music with that off-beat reggae sound, mixed with indie rock, to create an easy to listen and accessible musical output. The effect is a sound which contains the energy of a rock band and the infectious rhythm of reggae. As a band who have played together for some time, they have the confidence and abilities to play a wider range of music without loosing their sense of identity and tracks such as Dust on the Ground draw more heavily on the sound of Joy Division. They have the touring and playing maturity to belie their relatively young age and the experience to effectively appeal to a broad spectrum of listeners and move out of their natural comfort zone easily.
