Bombay Bicycle Club reveal new song 'Carry Me' – listen
The band preview their fourth studio album ahead of 2014 release
Titled 'Carry Me', the song is the first track to be taken from the London band's fourth album, due for release in 2014. The release follows their 2011 album 'A Different Kind Of Fix'.
An interactive video for the song can be seen below. The innovative video reflects the album artwork, paying homage to the great Eadweard Muybridge, a stop-motion photographer. Viewers are able to control the band’s actions throughout, essentially making them the director while the band perform in time to the music.
Speaking to NME about their new album, Bombay Bicycle Club reveal that their sound has evolved into something new and different to that with which they made their name. "People have said contrasting things, that it’s evolution – just continuing on from before – or it’s revolution – completely different," guitarist Jamie MacColl says. "But if we’d have just continued as an indie rock band – I don’t even think we’d still be going."
Teasing the change in sound, frontman Jack Steadman added: "The songs seem like a brave step in a new direction. From our point of view, it’s stuff that’s been happening for almost a decade now – we've always changing."
The full interview with Bombay Bicycle Club will be available in this week's NME, available on newsstands and digitally from Wednesday (November 6).
