Bastille have long been one of my favourite group so I was pretty delighted to receive their new track in my inbox last week.
What You Gonna Do??? is the first release from Bastille since their Doom Days album which was a global hit. And although any listener should be able to identify a few nods to classic Bastille as well as Dan’s vocal, there is something different about this track.
In another change of direction, the band have enlisted Graham Coxon (best known for being part of Blur) on guitar and vocals.
The track’s extraordinary video sees Bastille collaborating with Rezza a British/Iranian, London-based animator. It’s a mash-up of mixed media using illustration, photography and live action which resulted in a unique and innovative style that is winningly berserk.
You can listen to What You Gonna Do??? on all streaming platforms now!
