[Audio] Bastille’s ‘bad_news’

 

Bastille

London ElectroPoppers Bastille fold a little Future R&B into the sound on their new single; bad_news. The track will feature on the bands new EP, Oblivion. The EP will see a limited (1,000 copies) 7” release and feels like a chance for Bastille to air their experiments with new sounds. Apparently some of the new stuff is more Rocky, we’re crossing out fingers that their new sound will settle on deep electronic grooves like bad_news though. Check it out.

bad_news is a combination of complex Future R&B rhythms with rave-y synth squeals and Dan’s instantly recognisable vocals, albeit in a more introspective flavour. A mid-tempo jam that lyrically nicely sums up both the giving and receiving of the titular bad news while an array of synth warbles and whooshes fill the track out in the background. We’re definitely intrigued to hear what Bastille are cooking up for us in the future.
