Touring in support of So Long, See You Tomorrow, their fourth album in five years, Bombay Bicycle Club stopped in to The Current's studio to play some songs and to chat with Bill DeVille.
Named for a now-defunct chain of Indian restaurants, Bombay Bicycle Club spoke about their recent gigs at Coachella and how that festival reminded them of the film Groundhog Day.
Acknowledging that touring gives them the opportunity to travel the U.S. in a bus with their friends, the members of the band talk about how they see the U.S. not so much as one nation but instead as many cultures and climates. Speaking of which, Bombay Bicycle Club found the grey, rainy, mild weather in the Twin Cities reminiscent of their native London. "It makes us feel at home," singer/guitarist Jack Steadman said. The band played a gig at the Varsity Theater on Tuesday, April 29.
Listen to the complete audio to hear more from the band members, including Steadman's thoughts about what it is that makes Mumbai a must-see place for creative types. Additionally, guitarist Jamie MacColl describes a childhood visit to his great-uncle's cabin along the Hudson River in New York a great-uncle the rest of us know better as Pete Seeger.
The first two tracks off Bombay Bicycle Club's 2014 album, So Long, See You Tomorrow, distributed in the U.S. by Vagrant Records. "Shuffle" off the band's 2011 album, A Different Kind of Fix, distributed in the U.S. by A&M/Octone.
