77 Bombay Street release ‘Seven Mountains’ EP

Swiss folk-rock brothers known as 77 Bombay Street release new EP worldwide titled ‘Seven Mountains’ via GadgetRecords this month.

The double platinum selling band has had a successful few years performing alongside The Cure, Sting, Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys, Imagine Dragons and playing more than three hundred concerts in the past seven years including appearances in Swiss festivals Montreux Jazz, Gurten, Paléo and Open Air Gampel as well as performances at European festivals such as Eurosonic Noorderslag, Le Printemps de Bourges and Reeperbahn and gigs in Germany, England, France, Italy, Sweden, and the Netherlands as well as countless tours of their home nation.
Matt, Joe, Simri-Ramon and Esra Buchli draw common comparisons to The Beatles, Snow Patrol and Kings of Leon although the band say they seldom listen to contemporary music, being driven by their own life experiences as influence. “The lead single “Seven Mountains” is a reference to our ups and downs. As a band, we have really been shaken about over the past few years: we had to find ourselves anew,“ says Matt Buchli. While searching for themselves, 77 Bombay Street has really developed in leaps and bounds. The vocals on the new EP have a noticeable confidence. In terms of their style too, they have explored new genres, adding elements of classic to their more usual folk-rock style. For the first time ever, they have supplemented their acoustic sound with stringed and wind instruments. Despite being in their seventh year, there isn’t a hint of a seven-year itch here; this is all about a brave new Bombay sound.
