Bombay Bicycle Club is currently entering the final month of a North American junket, which will wrap up in Vancouver in three weeks. The English band initially made waves on the other side of the pond in 2006, winning Virgin Mobile’s “Road to V” competition. Since, the group has grown to into one of the UK’s top rock troupes; likewise, their lush, drifting melodies and echo-y, atmospheric lulls have steadily garnered fans the world over.
In 2010, Bombay Bicycle Club claimed NME Magazine’s coveted Best New Band award, and last summer the group released its third full-length album, A Different Kind of Fix, featuring the cut “How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep,” a song that you might recognize from the Twilight Saga’s second film, Eclipse, or this awesome claymation video:
Also on the HOB’s bill next Monday are lysergic-ly chilled Philly act Vacationer and new, local indie gang Sports & Leisure. Peep their sounds below.
