Bastille - thursday 21:05 – 21:15

Originally the solo project of singer/songwriter Dan SMith, London quartet Bastille combine glossy '90s synth textures and arena-friendly choruses into dramatic yet earnest, brooding yet joyful songs like their hit single "Pompeii", which helped them sell millions of their 2013 debut album, Bad Blood. Later on, the band expanded on and refined their approach. For 2016's Wild World, they added hints of R&B, dance and rock as well as overtly political songwriting, then took  took a conceptual and confessional approach on 2019's gospel and house music-influenced Doom Days.
