Bombay Bicycle Club have always found themselves bound to a specific place.
After all, the band's name - a chain of Indian restaurants - has little relevance outside of England. Yet with their new album 'So Long, See You Tomorrow' the band are attempting to channel all manner of new influences.
Born from their travels, pieces for the new album were sketched down on just about every available continent. Spearheaded by Jack Steadman (who wrote and recorded the album) 'So Long, See You Tomorrow' is due to be released on February 3rd.
Ahead of this, new single 'Luna' is already turning heads. It's indie-dance shuffle owes as much to the streets of Istanbul as it does to the clubs of London, while the melody line might just be the most contagious thing Bombay Bicycle Club have ever produced.
The track debuted on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show last night (January 6th), and the video is now online. Featuring a synchronised swimming team, it's an oddly beautiful pairing which reflects the rhythmic symmetry running through 'Luna'.
Watch it now.
