the insiders: bombay bicycle club
the boys give us the scoop on their new album.
So Long, See You Tomorrow is your fourth album. Do you guys set out to make a slightly different sound each time?
Every single one of our albums have sounded different from the previous one. But it was never really an intentional thing; we just make the music we love to make, which just so happens to change over time.
Definitely. It keeps things interesting that way.
We've done quite a few of wild shows, but the craziest one this year was with the Union Jacks in India. We were at a music festival and it was quite disorganized, but that didn't matter because the crowd was so great. They didn't know our music until we got onstage...they thought we were literally a bicycle club! It was so funny.
For Jamie and I, we did this workout last time called Insanity. I was so dumb to do it, because it was so painful! I don't think we're going to do that again. You need a good pair of boots--those go a long way-- and always bring a jacket because you never know when it's going to be cold. Also, this isn't something I bring, but we do watch a ton of Netflix on the road.
Which shows do you binge-watch?
So many! The most recent one I watched was It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia--it was great. Last tour we also watched Breaking Bad and Homeland...hopefully we can finish season three of Homeland once we're back on the road!
