Longitude Headliners Bombay Bicycle Club Hit #1 With Electro Pop Experiment ''So Long, See You Tomorrow''
Bombay Bicycle Club have entered the UK album charts at #1 for the very first time in their career with their 4th effort So Long, See You Tomorrow. The English indie act debuted top ahead of acts like Avicii, Ellie Goulding and Beyonce.
Released last week, the band's fourth outing is a rapid departure from the traditional alternative style of their earlier work, instead incorporating electronic influences in order to craft a delightful synth pop album, and the finest record of their short career, which received a glowing review from HMM last Thursday.
The album is currently sitting 8th on our own charts, with Goulding's Halcyon Days in the lead just ahead of Kodaline and Bruce Springsteen, while Pharell Williams' ''Happy'' tops the singles chart.
BBC are touring home territory throughout March before hitting our own Latitude festival in July, having been announced to join the likes of Disclosure, James Vincent McMorrow, Haim and Chvrches this past week.
