Bombay Bicycle Club’s Ed Nash shares first solo track as Toothless – listen

The musician will play his debut live show in London in May

Bombay Bicycle Club‘s Ed Nash has shared his first solo track under the moniker Toothless.

‘Terra’ will be released on May 13 via Transgressive/Paradyse Records and was self-produced, with some help from Nash’s Bombay Bicycle Club bandmate Jack Steadman.

The record was mixed by Beach House and TV On The Radio producer Chris Coady. You can listen to it below.

Earlier this year, Bombay Bicycle Club confirmed plans to take an extended break, stating that they are all pursuing solo projects after spending 10 years as a band.

The group issued a statement via social media, which stressed that they have not split up, but that they will be taking time out and have no immediate plans to record new music together.

Instead, Steadman and Nash are both recording solo albums and guitarist Jamie MacColl is returning to university to study for a degree. Drummer Suren De Saram is available as a session musician.

“After ten years of doing this we thought it was time for all of us to try something else,” the band said in a statment. “For a band that has been together for such a long time, we are all still incredibly close and probably get on even better than we did when we started the band.”
