Watch Bastille channel classic horror and erotic movies in ‘Send Them Off!’ video

It's the second single from their chart-topping 'Wild World' album

Bastille have shared the video for their new single ‘Send Them Off!’.

The darkly provocative video, described as a “very modern twist on Dante’s Divine Comedy“, sees the band channel infamous Nicole Kidman/Tom Cruise erotic drama Eyes Wide Shut as well as classic horror movie Rosemary’s Baby. Watch below.

‘Send Them Off!’ is the second single and video from the band’s second album ‘Wild World’, which recently entered the UK albums chart at Number One. ‘Good Grief’, the first single from the album, peaked at Number 13 on the singles chart.

Discussing what inspires him to write songs, Bastille’s Dan Smith told NME recently: “I’ve never been interested in diarising my life through song. So much stuff has been done before. So many people have brilliantly articulated the pain of heartbreak or the joy of love or whatever. Those elements exist in our music but I guess I strive to write about unconventional things instead.”

Meanwhile, the band were joined on stage by Craig David during their Apple Music Festival gig At London’s Roundhouse earlier this week. The band performed three songs with the singer: two of their own, plus David’s classic hit ‘Fill Me In’.
