Regular readers should be a little familiar with Dan Smith aka BASTILLE by now. We were one of the first blogs to feature BASTILLE, back in December. Not only has he got a brand spanking new website but he's also putting out his debut single, a 7" vinyl of 'Flaws' and 'Icarus'.
I wrote about 'Flaws' when it popped up in January, calling it a "soaring electro-choral mash up". 'Icarus' isn't just another B-side either, and to me, this is definitely a double A-side release. Both tracks are sublime, grandiose pop. Download 'Icarus' for nothing below. Then pre-order the 7", to get hold of 'Flaws', which will be sent to you digitally with immediate effect.

'Flaws'/'Icarus' is out on 7" in July on Young & Lost Club.
