Bastille – Bad Blood

Radio-friendly pop rock from the UK. You have most likely heard their hit single “Pompeii”. What stands out about this album is the cinematic approach to the production paired with dramatic lyrics, many of which reference historical events and literature. Many standout moments throughout the album, from the background vocals of the lead single to the xylophone of “These Streets”. This certainly won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you like “Pompeii” then you will like the rest of the album.

RIYL: Capital Cities, Gotye, Coldplay
