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.

In a telephone interview from London, bass player Ed Nash tells Life! that while the new album has been influenced by a variety of music including hip-hop and dance, frontman Jack Steadman has been looking East quite a fair bit in recent times.

The band will be in Singapore to perform at *Scape's The Ground Theatre on July 29.
