New melancholic guitar complexity from Bombay Bicycle Club, listen here

The third single drawn from their critically-acclaimed album A Different Kind of Fix, Leave It offers a sombre take on BBC’s epic stylings. Minor keys rule the day, alongside the picked, revolving Talking Heads guitar riffs that have come to dominate 2011s indie landscape. The chorus, when it comes, soars wistfully, perfect iPod fodder for anyone expecting to catch the object of their desire bagging off with a fit stranger on NYE. For those of you who don’t plan their humiliating setbacks days in advance, Leave It is still a layered, evolving, and rewarding listen, but really, isn’t it time you just grabbed the whole album?
