Bombay Bicycle Club Essentials
No, Bombay Bicycle Club aren't a tour company based in India—they're a four-piece London band whose brand of atmospheric indie rock has brought them considerable acclaim over the last decade. Mixing elements of folk, electronic and world music, the group's sound is light on its feet, yet melancholy, with Jack Steadman's vocals sounding like a cross between Modest Mouse's Isaac Brock and David Bowie. On discography highlight A Different Kind of Fix, they channel influences ranging from Smashing Pumpkins to Everything But the Girl. Put simply, there's no other band that sounds like this.
