The rise of Bastille has been pretty swift. While most people will still mainly know them for their infamous hit “Pompeii”, the London-based band has brought with them a number of feel-good tunes that are decently emotional while still remaining energetic and carefree for the most part. Their sound remains within the indie rock/pop scene while exploring more tribal, tropical elements as well as some rather trippy, jivey backbeats, with a moody piano riff and emphatic drumline accompanying most of their catchy and easily identifiable tunes.
