ALBUM REVIEW: Doom Days, Bastille

Bastille first shot to fame in 2013 with their single, Pompeii and frontman, Dan, felt like an imposter. Being in a band that people know is a big jump from writing songs in your bedroom. Over the past few years Bastille have been writing and releasing loads of music, collaborating with people and touring the world. Somehow, they felt like their fame was temporary.

Dan, Kyle, Will and Chris wrote most of their third album, Doom Days, in 2018. Set over the duration of a night, the album is packed with emotion, redemption, truths and is overall, an honest journey. Being released tomorrow (14th June 2019), Doom Days is packed with diverse music, taking inspiration from gospel, house music, R&B and folk music, all coming together to make the sound of Bastille.

With leading singles, Quarter Past Midnight, Joy, Those Nights and Doom Days, there are plenty of unheard tracks that take you on a journey. Dan explains that Doom Days will "mess with people's expectations of what Bastille are and what we want to be".

Opening with Quarter Past Midnight, the song is all about the people who are out looking for something, the risk takers. Moving through the tracks, Bad Decisions, The Waves and Decide are all about escapism. Million Pieces was written about a time where Dan felt like someone was accosting him about politics when trying to enjoy himself, the track is more of an expression to say "It's incredibly important but can we leave it tomorrow?".

Doom Days approaches the topic of phone addiction which is a growing issue in today's society. Our mobile devices are powerful in more ways than one. To lift spirits the album moves towards more uplifting topics for example the special times and moments mentioned in song, 4AM.

Most importantly, the final track, Joy, tackles the idea that even a small interaction can "pull you back from the brink". The light and the end of the tunnel. Doom Days is more than just a journey, it's truthful and raw. A new side to Bastille that I think it so now.

I can't wait for you to hear the album!

Until next time...
