Bombay Bicycle Club are a band in a lofting transition. Still very young, they play like veterans as they work through a calm and melodically perfect set.

Ultimately alternating songs between their debut 'I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose' and their second album 'Flaws', they also sprinkle in some tracks from their new LP 'A Different Kind of Fix' garnering its upcoming release.

'Always Like This' and 'Magnet' resonate best with the crowd during an enjoyable showing that proves no doubt that their ongoing evolution with hold them high on the festival circuit for many years to come.
