Bastille are back with new single "Good Grief"

Tuesday 19th July 2016

Good Grief

Release date: TBC Label: Virgin EMI

 Bastille return with ‘Good Grief’, the opening track and first single to be taken from their stunning new album, ‘Wild World’. The song received its first worldwide play on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show at 7.30pm and tomorrow will be played on every show across the station. 

Good Grief is a bouncy, infectious, summer stomper. With a hypnotic bassline, skittish synths and soaring vocals, the track builds to a huge, rousing chorus. It’s unmistakably a Bastille song, euphoric yet melancholic and fans who immersed themselves in the band’s early, dialogue-strewn mixtapes will enjoy its sampling of Kelly Le Brock from 80s cult classic, 'Weird Science'. Written by Dan Smith and co-produced by Mark Crew, the track perfectly showcases Smith’s undeniable song-writing prowess and flair for a hook.

2016 looks set to see Bastille scale new heights and cement their reputation as a major global act. The four piece play many of this summer’s festivals with further headline dates yet to be announced.
