Last month saw Dan Smith’s solo-turned-band project Bastille release the outrageous ‘Overjoyed’ to an excited fan-base and an impressed blogging community. The band, who have performed at both Glastonbury and the Isle Of Wight festival, are showing a rapid progression as a four-piece, a progression epitomized by the three and a half minutes of pleasure ‘Overjoyed’ provides us with. As always with Bastille, the track is littered with stumbling beats with a gentle dubstep influence, offset by awakening piano chords which support the song’s fragile vocals delightfully. The rousing chorus is reminiscent of Chris Martin or Justin Vernon and along with it’s haunting lyrics compels you to buy into Smith’s stunning pain. We are certainly going to see some exciting things from Bastille in the months to come and don’t be surprised if they jump from the shadows into the charts.
