Bastille - 'Bad Blood' Bastille Tickets

About as much identity as a Facebook commenter without a profile picture

Bastille - 'Bad Blood'

5 / 10 Bastille want everyone to like them. They want Arcade Fire fans who love a cliff-edge epic to like them (YouTube hit ‘Pompeii’). They want the Coldplay mass-emotional armies to like them (‘Overjoyed’). They even seem to want people after a piano version of Ed Sheeran to like them (‘Daniel In The Den’). Alas, all this greedy grasping means the London newcomers can’t really get a firm grip on anything, meaning ‘Bad Blood’ comes out with about as much identity as a Facebook commenter without a profile picture. The Two Door support slots and Made In Chelsea soundtrack spots they’ve secured so far should guarantee a certain level of popularity among the many ‘target markets’ they’re aiming at, mind.
