Best Covers: Ed Nash & Liz Lawrence ‘Mad World’

Ed Nash of Bombay Bicycle Club has covered classic Tears for Fears ‘Mad World’ alongside Liz Lawrence – the single is in aid of Samaritans, which receives a higher volume of calls around Christmastime. 

Less dreary than the version made famous by Gary Jules in Donnie Darko, this is a more chipper interpretation that reflects the indie sensibilities of both Liz Lawrence and Ed Nash’s solo work, as well as that of his band.

Hit of the week: Apre ‘ All Yours’

London-based duo APRE have just unveiled their debut single All Yours, a captivating indie cut with infectious pop sensibilities. Lyrically the song captures the intensity of that point where you are ready to give yourself to someone entirely. Musically, too, APRE twist those most intimate moments into widescreen, alternative pop, drawing equal inspiration from the likes of Foals or Bombay Bicycle Club as red-blooded 80s pinups like Tears for Fears and ABC.

The muses of La Musa: Lucy Rose

Lucy Rose, former backing vocalist with the UK band Bombay Bicycle Club, started out recording her solo material at home. The music videos she then posted on YouTube were an immediate success, introducing the world to a fine voice and lyrics full of sincere emotion. Rose’s debut album, ‘Like I Used To’, made her more widely known as one of the leading artists on the British indie folk scene. She is now busy touring her latest LP, ‘Work It Out’ (2015), which has garnered even more fame for this young artist. Her influences include such singer-songwriters as Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, she opened for Elton John in 2013, and now she can fill venues all over Europe on her own merits. Opening the show is another young singer-songwriter,

Lucía Scansetti. The artist from Madrid presents her own new album, ‘Dimensions of Dialogue’. Today at sala Barts.

Atzucac: Bombay Bicycle Club "Feel"

Divus Julius Bonasera ens presenta l‘atzucac de la setmana: Feel. El quart disc dels anglesos, Bombay Bicycle Club, els ha situat definitivament com una banda important arreu d’Europa i a ser considerats a nord-amèrica. Tanmateix, l’èxit sembla traspassar les fronteres del món occidental i arriba fins l’Índia.La culpa és d’una cançó Feel, que trobem al bell mig del seu flamant nou disc So Long, See YouTomorrow. Jack Steadman, el líder de la banda, passà un temps a l’Índia abans d’acabar de donar forma al seu disc i va tenir l’occurrència de samplejar una de les cançons més famoses de la història del cinema hindú sense ser-ne conscient. Feel té un ritme que infecta a la primera escolta. El vídeo ha estat gravat a l’Índia per actors de la indústria de Bollywood.

El club de la bicicleta de Bombay

La banda britanica Bombay Bicycle Club serà aquesta nit a Barcelona per primera vegada presentant el seu nou disc So Long, See You Tomorrow. Tot i que aquest és ja el seu quart disc i ha aconseguit el nº 1 a Gran Bretanya, la banda molt reconeguda al seu país encara no ha aixecat el vol fora de casa seva. Barregen el folk amb l’electrònica i els ritmes tribals i han atès amb aquest quart disc una actitud madura i calma. Aquesta nit a la sala Bikini.
