Bombay Bicycle Club

5 Jan

What’s the story?:  A shy bunch of British teens who look happy to be here. Started out with an edgy indie rock sound, but new album “Flaws” is all about mellow acoustic little ditties sung with an impish grin.

 

Sounds Like:  If Weezer met the Shins in an alley, beat them up, and stole their Sunday morning songs.

The gateway song: “Ivy and Gold”
