In New Music We Trust Stage
Music To Magnetize
Bombay Bicycle Club have built up an impressive reputation, yet you get the idea that they are only just getting started. This anti-rock quartet, proclaimed by the NME as "the hottest band to come from north London for quite some time", rose to fame through magnificent festival performances, including a star turn on the BBC Introducing stage.
Jack, Jamie, Suren and Ed have been playing together since they were 15, forming part of an indie scene comprising The Holloways, The Young Knives and The XX. They soon gained critical acclaim, being named Best New Band at the 2010 NME Awards, gaining a coveted Ivor Novello nomination and featuring on The Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack.
With three musically diverse albums under their belt and brilliantly bittersweet hits such as Shuffle and Magnet, expect this band to turn up the heat with an electric performance in Hackney.
