Bastille are an Alternative Rock band from South London, England. They started out as an outlet for singer-songwriter Dan Smith, who previously had been writing songs with Nick Littlemore of Empire of the Sun while signed to Sir Elton John's management company. After deciding to form a band in early 2011, Smith (whose birthday is on Bastille Day - geddit?) was joined by Chris 'Woody' Wood, Will Farquarson and Kyle Simmons. They spent that summer playing to fans at festivals around the UK including Glastonbury and Isle of Wight, before getting signed by Virgin Records on December 1, 2011.
This is their first third single and their first to enter the UK singles chart, peaking at #21.
Dan Smith is a film buff and he spliced together a successful video for this song with clips from Terrence Malick's 1973 film, Badlands. "I like cutting visuals to music," he told NME, "it's quite satisfying. I'm sure I do it in a really clunky and terrible way, but it's fun."
