TRACK REVIEW: 'Racing Stripes' - Bombay Bicycle Club
RELEASE DATE: 19 DEC 2019
GENRE: INDIE ROCK / AMBIENT ROCK
A stadium anthem with so much space and magnanimity that hearkens to some of Bon Iver's earlier work. The track comforts you into this wide expanse of empty land, where the vocals sit right in the middle, before enveloping you like a blizzard in the shape of backing vocals and strings. Hayley Williams is involved in the production of this track too, which is an intriguing development in her career but definitely reflective of the type of 'less-is-more' approach in some of her more ballad-like songs. Truly, another wonderful addition to the Bombay Bicycle Club canon.
Their latest album 'Everything Else Has Gone Wrong' is out now.
