British bands reveal new efforts alongside albums from Broken Bells, The Family Rain and more
Maximo Park and Bombay Bicycle Club lead this week’s new album releases (February 3).
Maximo Park release their fifth album ‘Too Much Information’. It is the follow-up to their 2012 LP ‘The National Health’. ‘Too Much Information’ was recorded and produced by the band in Newcastle and Sunderland with additional production duties from The Invisible’s Dave Okumu and from Field Music’s David and Peter Brewis.
Meanwhile, Bombay Bicycle Club release their latest album ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’. Speaking to NME, frontman Jack Steadman recently revealed how exploring the globe helped him personally, as well as providing influence for new songs.
“I think the travelling gave me a sense of wellbeing rather than any direct musical influence,” Steadman says. “Also, we were getting more inspired by samples. They become the springboard for your song and, whether it’s an Indian song or something with Thai chanting, you should never deny that inspiration just because it sounds silly or because the thought of it is weird.”
Elsewhere, there are new albums from Broken Bells, CEO, Xiu Xiu, Mark Mcguire, Young Fathers and Breton while The Family Rain release their eagerly anticipated debut album.
