After two weeks of gigs in Kathmandu we managed to get back on our bikes, leave Nepal, and head back into India to hit the tea plantations of Assam. 📸 by @intandemstories
Watch episode 2 of our musical cycling world tour right now! Hit the link in the bio to watch us play some out there ambient tunes in Macedonia. Still can’t get over how good the intro graphic looks, thanks @studiomoshon!
One from our halloween set at @club25hours in Kathmandu. We’re playing our final gig tonight before (maybe😅) leaving to head back to India next week... Maybe. 📸 by @intandemstories
This might look like an English bbq but we’re in Kathmandu... promise!
Final days in our jungle studio before we hightail it to Kathmandu to play a couple of gigs. Rainforest isn’t what you first think when conjuring images of Nepal but we’ve loved cycling through it. 70% sure we saw a tiger as well... #mighthavebeenacow • 📸 by @intandemstories
Taking the techno deep in the Himalayan jungle. Probably scared off every wild animal in a 40km radius of us but it was worth it! Great drone work from @bike_the_world, hope to shoot some more together before we part ways.
On the prowl for elephants and tigers in the Indian jungle. They’re hard to spot though, the jungle is massive.
Still my guitar gently bleeps. Almost mastered transcendental meditation at the Beatles Ashram en route to Nepal. Turns out it’s quite hard to nail in an afternoon. 📸 by (you guessed it!) @intandemstories
We’ve posted our first episode from the road on YouTube! Link’s in the bio. Thanks so much to @saravriding and @studiomoshon for the intro graphic. We love it!!
After an amazing 10 days in Delhi we’re back on the road and heading towards Nepal complete with a new hat, a new sign, a new 3 wheeled bike and a new band member. 📸 the fantastic @intandemstories
Rarely get the opportunity to do something like this! @boxoutfm gave us the chance to present a show perform tracks, tell the story of each song, how we’d been inspired and deconstruct the compositions. We’ll have the full set as a podcast to soon. Exciting! - - - Also big points to anyone who can guess which movie the sample’s from.
We look for collaborators at every turn. Delhi threw us together with some amazing artists. @kavyatrehan joined us for an impromptu collaboration during our @sofardelhincr set and her ethereal style worked amazingly with the sounds we’re creating. Thank you Sofar for bringing us together, looking forward to more sets like this! 📸 by the mighty @intandemstories
TOUCHDOWN: INDIA. We’ve arrived in Delhi with the mountains of Central Asia behind us and a world of busy roads, giant bats and serious poses ahead. 📸 by @kavyatrehan
HUGE NEWS. You can now listen to our very first full track! Search Total Bike Forever on Spotify or use the link in our bio. We put this together with a drummer we met in Nice who let us stay in his attic apartment for a few days whilst we recorded. Pour yourself a pastis and turn it up!
You can take the boys outta Hackney but you can’t take Hackney outta the boys! Before flying to India, we spent our last night in Central Asia playing a gig for @brewster_bishkek, one of the only micro breweries we’ve come across. Getting paid in IPA = Dream come true
If you’re interested in tackling the Pamir Highway as effectively as possible then we’re not your guys. If you want some advice on how to cycle in extreme environments with 68% non-essential equipment then get in touch. We also made a detailed map of all the decent coffee, ice cream, bread and beer on the M41 so ask if you want a copy!
