[INDIE] When thinking of a way to describe Bombay Bicycle Club, “the British Vampire Weekend” is the most immediate thing that comes to mind. That’s not quite right, however. Despite the quartet’s love for quirky, distorted guitars and tight, catchy beats, this year’s So Long, See You Tomorrow is a collection of songs bigger and fuller than those on its previous three albums, from the glitchy groove on the woozy “Home by Now” to the shimmery, frenetic keys, moody guy-girl harmonies and fuzzy bass of “Luna." These guys might not possess the same tongue-in-cheek cleverness as Vampire Weekend, but their sound is just as much their own thing.
