CD: Bombay Bicycle Club – A Different Kind of Fix

Can the rising stars of smart guitar rock deliver on their third album?

Bombay Bicycle Club: taking the best of 1980s alt-rock and putting it in a blender

In a recent interview with theartsdesk Bombay Bicycle Club talked about jamming together in their kitchen in Covent Garden in central London, but listening to A Different Kind of Fix it sounds as if they had their sights set further afield at the time. Their third album boasts an epic ambition that was absent from their more intimate second album, Flaws. This is a set of tunes that is big but never overblown, confident but never boastful. There are some lovely, grand chunks of rhythm that should make Fix a fixture in halls of residence up and down the country this autumn and could even finally break BBC in America.
