English alternative rock band BΔSTILLE is composed of singer/songwriter Dan Smith, Chris Wood, Will Farquarson, and Kyle Simmons. After starting as a solo project, Bastille became a quartet in 2010, and the following year signed with EMI Music, and then Virgin records one year later in 2012. After just three years together, they released the studio album 'Bad Blood' which reached the number two spot on the UK Album charts in 2013.
I've been obsessed with this album for the past month or so and I gotta say, if you give it a listen, you'll know exactly why. Generally, I don't consider myself a fan of pop/rock artists but what can I say, the man knows how to arrange a tune. Bastille mixes melodic piano ballads and often full orchestral accompaniments with light dance beats and perfect dynamics. It's one of those albums you can listen to over and over and not even notice where the time has gone.
Take a listen for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
