Single Review: Bastille Returns with Single “Good Grief”

good-grief-bastilleIt’s been three years since Bastille exploded in the music scene with their debut album ‘Bad Blood.’ Its hard to believe that the band became an over night hit with the single “Pompeii.” For months on end the song would be played continuously across radio stations.

Over the course of the years, the band have been busy touring across the world. Now they are back with a new single.

“Good Grief” is the lead single from the upcoming second studio album titled “Wild World”, which will be released later in 2016.

A feminine voice utters”So what would you little maniacs like to do first?,” a bass solo begins and then lead singer Dan Smith belts out in that deep British voice. The single perfectly embodies Bastille’s musical style. The band is known for soulful yet upbeat songs. This single is just that. A cheery melody is combined with soulful lyrics of heartbreaking creating an emotionally inducing single. Check it out:
