Bicycle's sole release, also called "Bicycle"- is a band/ album name combo fit to ensure that nobody in the internet age will ever be able track down anything about them EVER again. Luckily you have me to do the digging for you though, because this is good, fun stuff.
Lead singer Kurt Liebert knows his way around a catchy, summery/ sun-shiney tune. It's one of those albums that, once May or June hits, I am drawn inexorably back to. Imagine a more straightforward/ poppy Beck (including electronic flourishes and quasi-hip hop beats/ loops in places) and you'll be on the right track. I'm reminded instantly of "Cake" too (you know, the "Short Skirt, Long Jacket" guys).
Chris Ballew (yes, the Chris Ballew who sang and played bass in "The Presidents of the United States of America") has producer and backing vocal credits-so you know it's gonna be good, cheeky fun.
