Bombay Bicycle Club, 'Shuffle'
BBC go p.o.p.
Put simply, the boys have gone through the rabbit hole only to re-emerge with the kind of musical makeover most bands would give both ears for. ‘Shuffle’ takes a match to those former jumble sale rhythms with a house piano sample, baggy drums and a funky bass riff. Some credit must go to producer Ben Allen, whose work with the cream of the American indie elite (Animal Collective, Deerhunter) has clearly rubbed off on them. And, of course, ‘Shuffle’ is the perfect title: “to confuse”, “an artifice”, “to make a shift” – these multiple meanings all apply to Bombay Bicycle Club’s comeback single. Add to those “to delight” and “to wow” and you’ve got it about right.
