iTunes Review

Although Bombay Bicycle Club’s second EP surfaced in 2007, the London quartet’s adoration for bygone indie rock helped give How We Are a sound more in touch with 1997. “How Are You” opens as Jack Steadman’s voice quivers and shakes with endearing emotional urgency similar to Conor Oberst’s young inflections on the very first Bright Eyes album. The melodic and mid-tempo “Ghost” — the only song here to show up on the band’s debut album I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose — jangles and chimes with distorted guitars that resonate on slightly detuned tones, like those heard on Pavement’s Brighten the Corners. Bombay Bicycle Club even flirt with post-rock progressions on the opening of “Maybe More,” recalling TNT- era Tortoise before Steadman’s Oberst-esque trills turn to a more confident and flirty approach, à la Devendra Banhart. “Pedestal” bookends the EP with driving guitars, pedaling rhythms and Steadman steadying his singing with more control, hinting at the voice he would find and utilize on his band’s first album.

Customer Reviews

really good music!

ok, first of all, where did the Jonas Brothers come into this whole reviewing thing? i, personally like them, a lot. Maybe their stuff isn't as original because Nick (the main songwriter) is only 15 and his new experiences aren't new and original to you guys! gosh people... Sorry i blew up. ok, back on track, BUT anyways, i love this band! i think any british bands rock but these guys are really good and original and laid-back. snaps for teen vogue for featuring them!

I don't quite get why i'm only 4th to write a review.

This band is pure awesome-ness! I saw them in Teen Vogue like i've seen a lot of other bands but this is extremely different-although they remind me of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. But that's ok cause they're two completly different bands that have different minds. Bombay is a cool place. Bikes are fun. Guys from England are hot.That about sums the BAND up. The music does make me relax in a way though. Very laid back. LOVE IT ALL! Peace out.

BBC = Great

And they do sound a little like Clap Your Hands And Say Yeah, the lyrics and guitar. Its a cheap buy and they are a great band.

They adopted different names over the...
