“Really, what’s a girl to do? Wandering the cratered surface of a sci-fi desert the Mysterious Lady is set upon by a legion of swarthy suitors. Love is a high stakes game for our fighting princess and she despatches each with deadly efficiency. Going through the motions – is this all that love can ever be? Or is it all part of a bigger game?”
Angular synthesisers, gated snare and riffing sitar. ‘I Love You Love You’ is vintage Bollywood injected with 80’s influences like Bowie, Talking Heads and Wire. At once a lovers’ duet and more subtly a protest about the bureaucratisation and automation that impinges on every aspect of modern life, love included. ‘I Love You Love You’ sees The Bombay Royale invade some new stylistic territory whilst retaining their trademark style and swagger.
The second taste of the new album ‘Run Kitty Run’ due out August 11, coinciding with the band’s appearance at Sziget Festival in Budapest, Hungary and Paimpol Festival in Brittany, France.
