Bastille is this British alternative band from London. They style their name as BΔSTILLE, which I find to be kind of weird. Mostly because I don’t know how to type a triangle and it’s just confusing. But their single “Pompeii” is tons of fun and befits my spring feverish mood lately, so I’m all sorts of thankful for it.
The track was released digitally in February and appears on the band’s March 2013 album called Bad Blood (which as of yet, has not hit the U.S. or Spotify.) It’s a semi-dancey track perfect for those still bugging out over Imagine Dragons or Atlas Genius or Walk the Moon. It’s one of those feel-good pop-rock songs that feels big, lyrically and musically. It sort of sweeps you away with its self-aware lyrics about the passing of time and the struggle to remain optimistic in a fast-paced world. It’s quite infectious and I love it. Check it out:
