Bombay Bicycle Club are back in our playlists this week with fresh track ‘Willow’ featuring the serene vocals of Lucy Rose.

This gem is part of their upcoming Fantasies EP, dropping on February 23, marking a reunion with Rose after over a decade.

The Fantasies EP is shaping up to be a cosy get-together with friends, featuring collabs with Rae Morris, Liz Lawrence, and Matilda Mann. And if you’re itching for a physical copy, they’ve got you covered with a limited run of 2500 10″ eco-mix vinyls. A small number of independent record stores will also stock the release.

‘Willow’ is a throwback with a twist, combining the band’s intricate instrumentation with Lucy’s signature touch. It’s a little piece of musical magic you’ll want to dive into.

The band said: “When we decided to hold ‘Fantasneeze’ back for its release after the album, we kept working and finished off three other songs in short order… It’s also very much a continuation of My Big Day as it was recorded around the same time and mixed by Dave Fridmann.”

Fresh off the release of their album My Big Day, which hit number three on the UK charts, Bombay Bicycle Club isn’t just resting on their laurels. They’re embarking on a hefty tour, stretching from the UK and Ireland to the US. So, if you’re keen to catch them live, now’s your chance.
