This Just In: bad_news // Bastille

On Wednesday afternoon, the British boys behind last year’s megahit Pompeii – as well as other beauties such as Flaws and Bad Blood – debuted a new single from their upcoming Oblivion EP via BBC Radio 1 titled “bad_news.” Today the band uploaded the audio to youtube and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Seems like everyone is in agreement that while it’s different from the sound found on their debut album, it’s still decidedly Bastille and decidedly Very Good. The bass notes are a marked departure from the Londoner’s previous work, but lead singer’s smooth vocal makes this track as good (if not better) than their earlier catalog.

See for yourself!
