Bastille’s new studio album entitled ‘Bad Blood’ will be released here in Ireland on Friday the 1st of March 2013.
Only the brave and original survive the indie music maelstrom which either sucks new guitar bands down into the depths, or produces identikit sounds capitalising on trends of any given time. Bastille have moved away from the common output being churned out by indie bands to create pop songs that are absorbing and genre defining without ever being formulaic. The origins of Bastille lie in the creative mind of singer / songwriter Dan Smith, whose embracement of multi-eclectic musical styles have led to one of the most exciting sounds in new music today.
The music of Bastille was brought to life by one, but on stage the songs are emancipated by four band members, each dabbling with vocals, keyboards and percussion. Chris Wood on drums, and bassist Will Farquarson, are old musical acquaintances of Dan’s. Kyle Simmons, completing the line-up as keyboardist, is a friend of Dan’s who initially crossed paths with him at a party. Each has their main role in Bastille; however, confining them to a particular instrument would be as narrow as pigeon-holing Bastille to a certain musical genre. It is sonically that they are united, with vocal cohesion creating a live sound that transcends Dan’s more autonomous creative approach to recording the music.
