Bad Blood at the onset has led to ‘Bad News’. It’s not actually bad news though, it’s pretty f*cking good news. Released as the flip side of the ‘Oblivion’ single, we’re actually even more impressed with this one than anything else. Sure, it may not have hooks as catchy as the ones that propelled them to fame (see ‘Pompeii’ and ‘Things We Lost In The Fire’), but this is a whole new side of Bastille that we’ve never seen before — it’s almost completely electronic, and sounds more like one of the numerous remixes of their songs that we’ve seen so far than one of their usual releases.
