Covers, B-Sides, and Rarities: Bombay Bicycle Club's "You Already Know"

Written on their MySpace page:
Bombay Bicycle Club are four eighteen year olds who hail from North London. umm

ummm indeed. I assumed everyone have fully enjoyed BBC's brilliant new single, ‘Evening/Morning’, but in the event that you have not, I suggest you do so-- immediately. In the b-side to their single, the guys test out new grounds of the folk genre with the stripped down, acoustic number, ‘You Already Know’. The music is sparse and minimal, with frontman’s Jack Steadman’s vocals that’s thick with a matured weariness, and rarely reaching beyond a whisper while accompanied by female backups. ‘You Already Know’ is an engaging, intimate folk piece glowing with inviting warmth. Listening to this, you’ll forget how young they really are.
