      Bombay Bicycle Club: There are few things in music more exhilarating than the sound of a young band in a hurry. Velocity, hunger, surprise: these are the qualities that keep a band interesting. The band members have never wasted much time. Frontman Jack Steadman, guitarist Jamie MacColl (grandson of folk legend Ewan, nephew of the late Kirsty), bassist Ed Nash and drummer Suren de Saram formed the band at school in north London in 2006. Bombay Bicycle Club have always had youth on their side. Through touring and social media, they have built a fiercely loyal, tattooing-lyrics- on-their-arm kind of fanbase. "I've always thought it was because of having fans who were the same age as us who could come to talk to us after a gig and relate to us," says Jack. But A Different Kind of Fix is a giant step into adulthood: an intoxicating, enveloping record, which anchors its diverse inspirations in the warmth and dynamism of Jack's songwriting. It draws the strands of I Had the Blues, Flaws and Jack's solo instrumentals into a panoramic picture of what this band is capable of. It is a watershed for the band: not just their best record yet, but a promise of still better to come. "Bands these days get so pigeonholed by their first album, which 40 years ago was not the case, but we're constantly trying to find the kind of music we want to make," says Jamie. "And I'm not sure we've discovered that yet." Long may they continue searching.
