Okay. Some of you will remember Bombay Bicycle Club. They were incredible and they also stuck it out a lot longer than most indie bands from that era (with their latest album released in 2014). When they went on hiatus I can’t imagine too people were holding their breath to see what their members would do next, but fuck me we should’ve. Jack Steadman, who held lead vocal duties on Bombay Bicycle Club, has returned as Mr. Jukes bringing with him some of the most interesting and diverse set of tracks i’ve heard since Jungle. Stand out single Grant Green, featuring the legendary Charles Bradley is my personal favourite, with triumphant vocals belting over one of the funkiest tracks of the year. Mr Juke’s debut album God First comes out on July 14th.
