Single Review: Bombay Bicycle Club – Shuffle

By on Thursday, 7th July 2011 at 12:00 pm
 

‘Shuffle’ is the first single out of ‘A Different Kind Of Fix’, the upcoming album by Bombay Bicycle Club. The album is also going to be the band’s third. If you recall, their second, ‘Flaws’, was an acoustic one read the review here). To be frank, I wasn’t really into the acoustic sound, so this return to their normal equipment setup was great news to me!

The song starts of with some very, very bouncy piano notes. I immediately reminded myself, “ahh! No wonder this song’s called ‘Shuffle’! Also look at the cover art! A pair of dancing feet!” With only a few opening notes, Bombay Bicycle Club already made their stance very clear. This song is going to turn everyone’s feet into dancing feet. I must say this song succeeds in its goal: the ever bouncy piano riff that loops over and over the song gives people a very happy sensation and the rhythm of it makes your dancing nerves tickle very badly!

Overall, listening to ‘Shuffle’ is highly enjoyable. Especially when you can feel the heat, ‘Shuffle’ just pushes the summery atmosphere even more.

8/10

‘Shuffle’ is available now, and ‘A Different Kind of Fix’ will be out on the 29th of August. Post-festival season, Bombay Bicycle Club are on tour in the UK in September and October.
