7digital What we said: A bunch of David Lynch-obsessives with a weakness for early 90s euro-pop: doesn’t exactly sound like a recipe for commercial success, does it? Still, with top 40 singles, a string of sell-out tours, and two blog-dominating mix-tapes to their name already, Bastille have been happily proving the naysayers wrong for three years now and, if all goes to plan, they’ll be silencing the cynics for good with their full-length debut. Will they do it? Well, Dan Smith’s certainly plucked enough hooks from his kaleidoscopic mind to ensure Bad Blood heavy radio-rotation for the foreseeable future. And there’s real variety here too: offering up reggae rhythms on the title track, soaring, cinematic, electro-pop on ‘Pompeii’, and understated, string-driven balladry on ‘Oblivion’.
