Bombay Bicycle Club And February’s Albums Review

Bombay Bicycle Club – So Long, See You Tomorrow 8.5

Steadman and co’s 4th album in 5 years is a culmination of all their previous works, plus more.

The opener, Overdone, introduces the electro-hiphop-indie rock record in dramatic style and the album bounces from every cornerstone of the bands recent cultural voyage. Singles Carry Me and Luna strike distinctly different chords and act as metaphors for the album on a whole. Home by Now‘s beat sounds like something straight out of GTA: San Andreas and Feel is an absolute Bhanger! (listen to it and see what I did there!!). The London four-piece have delivered a very good album no doubt, but the record often feels disjointed and the eclectic mix of sounds is, in fact, its downfall.

The Family Rain – Under The Volcano 7.0

Anthemic choruses and heavy riffs in a very safe record that is still worth a spin.

The Walter boys from Bath have delivered a catchy first album that rarely strays from its Brit-pop/ indie rock path… and it’s far from groundbreaking. The band have recently supported Jake Bugg, Miles Kane and The Courteeners and that should give you an insight into the sort of sound they are going for. The album never reaches the heights of debut single Trust Me… I’m a Genius and the whole record just feels unbelievable, unauthentic and same-y.

Katy B- Little Red 8.0

Baby Katy delivers a fierce woman of an album that merges all aspects of London clubland.

Kathleen Anne Brian’s second album manages to retain an authentic sound and feel whilst simultaneously providing exciting, innovative tracks. Labelled as a Dubstep temptress after reaching mainstream success in 2010 with Benga-produced Katy On A Mission, it could of been easy for the pop star to rest on her laurels. However, with just the right splash of funky house, drum’n’bass, warbling and crooning this album is sure to feature in nightclubs for the foreseeable future.
