Dan Smith sings some sentimental rot about reading his girlfriend’s diary and the ensuing “fiyah” in that breathy moo of his

Bastille’s latest shares its name with a wonderfully despondent album released by Low back in 2001. On this, the London band’s frontman Dan Smith sings some sentimental rot about reading his girlfriend’s diary and the ensuing “fiyah” in that breathy moo of his. Low, meanwhile, sang about wanting to trap their newborn baby in metal so it stays small forever. I know who I’d rather scorch the earth with.
