Everything Else Has Gone Wrong is a delightfully poppy and exuberant record, a testament to the band’s now thirteen-year career. We’re treated to an early anthem in the form of Is It Real which boasts blissful harmonies and a guitar riff that demands to be sung back. The band never let up in terms of energy across the record, with primary songwriter Jack Steadman’s insights more uplifting than ever. Everything may have gone wrong, but it feels right to have Bombay Bicycle Club back and at the top of the game.
Everything Else Has Gone Wrong by Bombay Bicycle Club is out now via Mmm… Records/Caroline.
