Bastille are back once again with another hit single “Shut Off The Lights” and it’s a track that will make you crave for the summer time.
Bastille have a big year ahead of them with an album coming out, and a massive, UK arena starting in April. They decided to get the show on the road by releasing “Shut Off The Lights” – a highly catchy single that will have your toes tapping. Bastille have a unique sound that sounds like no other. Nobody in the industry sounds anything like them. This song is no exception to that rule. It’s wonderfully special and one of a kind. Member, Dan, shares;
“Shut off the lights is about being pulled out of your future-fearing anxieties by the person you’re lying next to. It’s about intimacy and physical connection, rejecting our worries about life and the future for a minute, and unplugging from it all to really be present. It’s a fun, real, human moment in the middle of this big album. But also, it’s a song that nods back to Paul Simon’s Graceland and a load of music we love. It made us want to dance around the studio and is ridiculously fun to play live”
He is by no means lying when he tells you that it will be fun to play live. Upon listening, you can just picture an arena filled to the brim with music fans dancing away to its infectious beats. The energy will bounce of the walls. You don’t just have to picture it however, the band will be tour around the UK so you are able to experience that moment in person!
