Bombay Bicycle Club: ‘Our new album is about bad habits and addictive behaviour’

London four piece talk meaning behind 'A Different Kind Of Fix'

Bombay Bicycle Club have revealed that their new album ‘A Different Kind Of Fix’ has been inspired by “bad habits and addictive behaviour.”

The London band, who have returned to recording electrically after their 2010 acoustic album ‘Flaws’, will release their third LP ‘A Different Kind Of Fix’ on August 29 and have also spoken about the hip-hop inspiration behind some of their new material.

Speaking to The Sun, frontman Jack Steadman said of the album title:

It’s the title of an old song I wrote about bad habits and addictive behaviour. We thought it fitted nicely as an album title as we were bringing our fans something different.

Steadman also spoke about the different influences on ‘A Different Kind Of Fix’, in particular on new single ‘Shuffle’, which he said has been influenced by hip-hop production.

He said of ‘Shuffle’:

I think that track really sets the tone for the rest of the record. It has a lot of sampled vocals and hip-hop breakbeats. And it doesn’t have a chorus.

Bombay Bicycle Club play Reading And Leeds Festivals at the end of the month, before touring North America with Two Door Cinema Club. They play their biggest UK tour to date in October.
