Bastille released a rock song that totally slaps??? Called ‘WHAT YOU GONNA DO???’ Yes they did and we’re so here for it! It was an unexpected turn in their music for the fans, but we love how they’re being the rock band they’ve always wanted to be. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that the song is so so good. When bands go in different directions, it can be difficult to adapt to, but this feels so good and so natural to listen to.
This next phase feels like a new beginning. It’s about completely tearing up our process, being spontaneous and starting again. We’re just really excited by the new songs. I think we’re making some of the best music we’ve ever made. We want to put it out now and not wait for the whole album to be done before anyone starts to hear it. This is about where we are now and hearing us in real-time.Dan Smith
You know when you just hear a song and you just immediately play it again without hesitation because it’s just that good? Yep. That was us with ‘WHAT YOU GONNA DO???’. We mean, how could you not replay it over and over? It’s a fun song that you can rock out to, but at the same time, it has a really good meaning behind it. We basically live our lives behind our screens, the people on social media have our attention, but what are they gonna do with it? So often it’s not something worthwhile when we really think about it.
Whether we’re outside or online, we’re perpetually hit by so many people vying for our attention, but we’re just left rolling our eyes at how rarely it’s for anything that decent or funny.Dan Smith
Listen To The Song & See Why We Love It So Much
The song features Graham Croxon, and the video is a mixed media illustration created by a London based animator. So not only does the song itself draw attention, but the things surrounding it pull us in and make us want to pay even more attention to it. We knew we loved Bastille, but until now, we didn’t realize just how much we love them. And it’s a lot.
