Remember London-based rock band Bombay Bicycle Club
? Remember how they were dominating the indie world with their latest record So Long, See You Tomorrow
in 2014, until the album title took on a much more literal meaning and they announced their hiatus? It was a sad, sad day for fans, but luckily they kept their promise and embarked on their own solo endeavors. Bassist Ed Nash continued to work with members of the band to release his solo album under the name Toothless
, and more recently BBC frontman Jack Steadman began his own solo project under the name Mr Jukes
. He released his debut album God First
earlier this summer and it tended to be much more production-based, which was always one of his main roles in BBC anyway.
He just released a super fun, animated video for one of the singles, "Leap Of Faith," which features De La Soul and Horace Andy. There's a massive beat, smooth rhymes, and clean cut production tricks. Personally, I'm pretty excited to watch Jack Steadman's behind-the-scenes talents shine.
