Why do we like this?

Riding off the success of their latest album, A Different Kind of Fix, Bombay Bicycle Club recently visited Detroit and met a welcoming crowd.

Troops of pint-sized teens huddled towards the front. The girls swayed, and those who seemed to know every word, sang along while their eyes stayed glued to the band, refusing to blink. Their male pals stood close by, equally transfixed, taking mannerism tips from frontman Jack Steadman. Jack, still very young as well, asserted himself with a playful smile and like a seasoned pro, belted out hit after hit. There was also a more matured audience, nodding along, taking refuge in the dimly lit pockets of the room.

Guided back to the music, I was mesmerized by the skillful arrangements, perfectly layered harmonies, floating melodies, and uplifting guitar parts that seemed to exist soley to keep one from ever hitting the ground. Music so well bred, it was as if Coldplay had popped out a band baby. It was the first time that BBC had been to Detroit, and by the smiles they shared on stage, I can only wager they were completely pleased with the turnout.

They'll make one more stop to the states in October, but then it's back to the studio to record their fourth album. BBC says the new album will be a little more electronic this time, possibly being influenced by the waves of great remixes surrounding their current album.

Speaking of which, those remixes are the whole reason I was turned on to BBC, so I will leave you with my favorite, "How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep" (Voyeur Remix).

Cheers.
