Mountain Bike – This Lonely Place

On Mountain Bike‘s new single This Lonely Place the initial gentle lilting tones are soon interjected with a pulsing drum beat and bouyant twang over which lead vocalist Etienne takes on a slacker vibe. The journey then continues with a singalong chorus that is almost Supergrass-esque, before freewheeling back down that mountain with a chaotic spiral psych out. Given that the band all started from other outfits and bring multiple ideas and influences to Mountain Bike, and the range of sounds in this one track, it’s surprising that everything works together in this nonchalant fashion.But it does.Brilliantly.
