Bombay Bicycle Club @ Union Transfer.

Last night, Bombay Bicycle Club performed the last show of their tour in the States at Philadelphia’s Union Transfer. Kicking off the show with “How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep,” one of their top hits from their latest album, A Different Kind of Fix, the North London band immediately got the packed crowd clapping and dancing. Bombay’s poppy beats and repetitive lyrics made it easy to sing along with the energetic band.

Wearing cropped, navy pants, a long-sleeved button-down and brown Chelsea boots, lead singer Jack Steadman easily fit the part of British indie pop star, frequently whipping his hair across stage along with guitarist Jamie MacColl. The two were constantly moving – at times flinging the main mic towards the audience and at one point, lifting water coolers up to the drummer so he could tap his sticks on their blue plastic surface.

It was an animated show that sent an equally animated crowd home with a satisfied fatigue.
