The Boy I Used to Be
How We Are

The Boy I Used to Be is the first extended play (EP) by Bombay Bicycle Club, released in 2007. It was released on CD and 1,000 limited edition numbered 10-inch vinyls. 500 vinyl copies were also pressed by the independent record label Nettwerk.[4] It was the band's first release since winning Channel 4's "Road to V" competition, where they won the opportunity to be the opening act at the 2006 V Festival.[5]


The EP was recorded at Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire with the music producer Jim Abbiss,[6] who had previously worked with Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian.[7] It contained tracks that were re-recordings of demos that the band had performed in their bedrooms.[8]


The band self-released the EP on their own label, Mmm... Records,[9] despite receiving numerous record label offers following the "Road to V" competition.[8] In an interview with The Independent, the band stated that this was because they wanted to gain more experience in the industry first.[10]
