THIS JUST IN: “OBLIVION” MUSIC VIDEO // BASTILLE
Bastille released the new music video for “Oblivion,” a song off their debut “Bad Blood” this week. According to Smith, “This will be the last single from “BAD BLOOD” and we’re really excited about having the opportunity to release it. We’ll keep you posted for updates on what new will feature on the release.”
This video seems to tell a continuing tale of death and mystery told by the “Bad Blood” and “Flaws” mini films. “Oblivion” features allusions to the previous videos and stars Sophie Turner (the one and only Sansa Stark of “Game of Thrones” fame) who happens to sport the same varsity jacket lead singer Dan Smith wears in “Flaws” and “Bad Blood.”
Given the context of the story told by the music videos and the song’s lyrics, perhaps Sophie plays a character that mourns the death of Smith and the fact that she cannot physically follow him to where he’s gone. But that’s just my two cents. What do you think the video means?
