Last.fm Trends: Bombay Bicycle Club Pedal On
London quartet Bombay Bicycle Club have had a whirlwind year – what with the build-up and aftermath of their latest album A Different Kind Of Fix.
Released in August, the album has had enough time to really settle itself into the rest of the band’s catalog. Last.fm Trends looks to see how it has been getting on.
The indie youngsters have been scrobbled a total of 11,332,688 times, with A Different Kind Of Fix being their third studio album following various EPs and singles.
The album has been scrobbled 1,149,622 times and is already just over 1,000,000 scrobbles behind 2010’s stripped-back album Flaws.
The release of lead-single “Shuffle” in June gave fans a taster of what was to come and although it didn’t increase their weekly scrobble count too much (as seen in the graph below), the scrobble count is nonetheless at an impressive 277,888. The release of the album, meanwhile, meant overall weekly scrobbles peaked at just over 300,000.
