Words: Saam Das
So BASTILLE are getting a bit of attention now, which is great. You may remember I was one of the first people to write about Dan, in a Surfacing feature at the end of last year. Well, he's back with a new demo, 'Flaws'.
Back then I said: "Classical leanings contrast the overwhelming pop hooks, which in combination with the rich vocals deliver a beguiling sense of majesty that places BASTILLE somewhere between Patrick Wolf and Hurts." 'Flaws' is slightly different, offering something of a soaring electro-choral mash up. But every bit as majestic as his previous two tracks, which you can listen to here.
For the sake of being completist, I've included a remix below to complete the current BASTILLE back catalogue. Although there's at least one other track floating about but I'm not sure if Dan really counts that as a BASTILLE track. It may well appear on this blog one day in the near future though.
