Four albums in and British indie band Bombay Bicycle Club are finally living up to their name and have gone Bollywood.
Feel, a single from their latest release, So Long, See You Tomorrow, features not just a sample from Man Dole Mera Tan Dole, a song from 1954 Hindi film Nagin, but its music video also features a full-on Bollywood dance scene.
