Release Date: September 3, 2013 Bastille are one of a trillion bands that blow up everywhere but here. Rock music doesn't exist in America, and when it does our saturation level is exactly one band. And that band isn't Bastille. Now, our Buzznet Overlords tell me that AbsolutePunk is international! We did it! So this ethnocentric rant means nothing to some of you, except confirming your already-held belief that America is a fucking wasteland...
There's nothing wrong with having an anthem on a record. A couple, even. But the debut synth-pop-rock album by British four-piece Bastille clobbers you with an unrelenting barrage of them. (Note to the band: your Summer Olympics were last year.) The record starts strong with Pompeii - a huge hit in the UK, where the album's been out since March. But all the pummelling drums, melodramatic piano and unsubtle hits of electronica that follow make the rest of the album pretty samey...
Release Date: May 28, 2013 Depending on your geographical positioning, Bastille may or may not be a new name to you. London's Bastille, originally the solo project of the supremely stylish Dan Smith before expanding to its current form, have recently seen fame and fortune across Europe and UK. Mainly due to the stadium and club slaying, super anthem "Pompeii", Bastille have already carved a gigantic niche for themselves in the British mainstream...
From one-man band to frontman and creative fulcrum, Dan Smith has taken his time getting the Bastille debut together. It's been a good couple of years since tracks from Bad Blood started a buzz, but he may have chosen his moment well. Much has been made of the dispiriting state of today's charts - apparently a swamp of Auto-Tuned vocals and joyless EDM synths, crying out for the salvation of a guitar or two. Bastille might not be the obvious antidote, but they offer a compelling alternative...
Let's get this out of the way first: Bastille is not a 'typical DiS Band'. It's hard initially to put your finger on why: Dan Smith (for he effectively is Bastille) ticks a lot of boxes with his soaring and powerful voice, his intelligent arrangements and his acute ear for the dynamics of a perfect pop/rock song. There is an awful lot to love about Bad Blood, the debut Bastille record...
Bastille purveys in what might be best described as "apocalyptic pop". Though Bad Blood, the band's major label debut, operates within the safe realms of verse-chorus structure, everything is amped up to 11, creating a sense of urgency that makes what could have been a collection of ordinary electronic indie pop sound like a battle cry for the end times...
If not yet inescapable, Bastille's angsty indie pop has already begun popping up in an unlikely array of settings (Emeli Sandé support slots, Made in Chelsea, YouTube Terrence Malick tributes - that last the work of film buff frontman, Dan Smith). Delusions of cultdom still surface on their debut (most obviously on the Twin Peaks-referencing Sarah Palmer) but overall, it is a hooky, unmistakably populist affair...
