‘Bad Blood’ is the new single from Bastille. To be honest, if you haven’t heard of Bastille already then you really should sit up and pay attention. After getting a significant amount of airplay on BBC Radio 1 and featuring on Huw Stephen’s show very recently, it seems others are really starting to take Bastille seriously. This single really showcases the talent of Dan Smith, the frontman, song-writer and pretty much, the brains behind Bastille. It shows an evolution from their earlier music to what has become a perfectly produced single. Watch the enigmatic video below.
It’s not your usual music video, it has even been accompanied by it’s own investigation on Facebook asking fans to give witness reports. Even this concept driven video adds excitement and something very different to the hype around Bastille. If you get the chance to see them live this summer I would highly recommend it, their live performances are electric. In my eyes it is definitely hard to draw comparisons as they aren’t like a lot of other acts. The Bad Blood EP was released on Friday and features the single alongside numerous remixes and a demo track, ‘Haunt’.
