I can’t say I’ve been super big on Bombay Bicycle Club’s previous releases, but goddamn is this shit solid. Lots of interesting things going on instrumentally throughout the album, especially in their use of vocal sampling. There’s definitely a solid complexity to their compositions, which is so damn impressive considering how catchy pretty much every god damn song is. Also, their bassist is a fucking badass. Seriously some of the best fuzzy bass shred I’ve heard in the context of indie rock since Ben Folds Five’s last (good) album. Some of the slower songs feel weirdly disjointed from the rest of the album, and I’m still kinda lukewarm in regards to the lead vocalist, but overall, So Long, See You Tomorrow is solid as fuck.
overall rating: kinda rulz.
