Bombay Bicycle Club Biography
This Indie-Rock band was formed in 2006 by singer + guitarist Jack Steadman, guitarist Jamie MacColl, bassist Ed Nash and drummer Suren De Saram, four old schoolfriends from North London, ENGLAND, known collectively as Bombay Bicycle Club.
Their first, self-released EP, 2007's "The Boy I Used To Be", was a pure distillation of adolescent wonder, brilliantly chronicling their coming-of-age in real-time. Two of its songs have been resurrected and retooled for "I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose", the band's debut full-length disc which came out in July 2009 via Island Records.
The following year, Bombay Bicycle Club's sophomore album, "Flaws", hit the top 10 of the British Albums chart.
The quartet next outing, "A Different Kind Of Fix", move away from the more acoustic vibe of the immediate predecessor and back toward an electric, dance-oriented sound. Recorded in Hamburg, London and Atlanta, the new album quickly ascended into the U.K. top 10 upon its August 2011 release. The catchy tune "Shuffle" was chosen as a single and turned out to be an Alternative radio top 40 hit in the States.
