Video: Bombay Bicycle Club - 'We Go On Naked Runs'

Bombay Bicycle Club have spoken about their brand new track 'You Carry Me', which they say could be described as a "euphoric dance track".

The London indie-band have previously said that they believe their next studio album will be influenced by electronic music and have said in a video which you can see above that their new track is in that vein. You can hear a live version of 'You Carry Me' at the bottom of the page.

"We've been doing one new track in the set," guitarist Jamie MacColl said backstage at Reading Festival. "We just toured America for three weeks and we played it every night and it seemed to go down very well."

He continued: "It's called either 'You Carry Me' or 'Carry Me'. Someone described it as 'euphoric dance' to me, which was interesting. There's two basses in it. It's quite dancey I guess, it's very electronic."

The guitarist also offered his tips for this year's Mercury Prize and said that he'd personally like The Maccabees to win, but he'd also back a nomination for Emeli Sande. "Everyone's seems to think Alt-J, that's the bookies' favourite," he said. "I think Emeli Sande will probably be up there. There hasn't been anything that has massively stood out, but I'd like The Maccabees to win it, that's a good album."
