Bastille: single review “Pompeii”

I am really enjoying this track from London based group Bastille. But then, I love singers that embrace their native accents. And synth pop.

I love the creepy concept of people being overtaken by the “black eye” and our video hero later succumbing to it. The Asian girls in the games parlour are a nice touch too but slightly out of place in what looks like downtown LA.

Special mention to Dan Smith’s hair.

Good song. Hi five. Number one.
