Carry Me

Album: So Long, See You Tomorrow (2014)
  • This was written during a stay that Bombay Bicycle Club frontman Jack Steadman made in a Dutch place called Nijkerkerveen. He told NME: "I'd only been to the big cities in the Netherlands before so I wanted to avoid that. I set up a studio and I wrote 'Carry Me' and 'It's All Right Now' there."

    "I like travelling alone, I stayed with families so they'd invite me for dinner," he added. "The dad of one family was a real hi-fi enthusiast with hundreds of speakers and played me all sorts of records. I was inspired by the 70s prog – like Traffic – he played. Listening to it made me want to make everything sound perfect when I got to the studio."
