Taking thing a little deeper...
Bastille

Something's changed within Bastille.

The project is veering away from the centre, retaining that innate pop nous while adding some decidedly challenging elements.

New single 'Fake It' is a case in point. The chest-crushing bass line is matched to glitchy electronics, while the vocal sample has more than a twinge of melancholy.

The voice is taken from a 1971 US National Institute of Mental Health video, and details a man who aims for a happier family life but finds himself ostracised by the local community as a hippy.

Check it out now.
