UPDATE: Bastille premiered their music video for “Good Grief” on Wednesday (June 22). The visual intertwines several different storylines, though all becomes clear(?) towards the conclusion.
EARLIER ON JUNE 16:
Bastille released their first Wild World cut titled “Good Grief.”
“You might have to excuse me, I’ve lost control of all of my senses,” lead singer Dan Smith coos in the upbeat pop rock single off sophomore album.
The band released a slinky and dark visual to promote their return, which fans thought was a peek at their new sound, but “Good Grief” is anything but. Instead, the English indie rockers keep it light while singing about throes of love, which premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show on Thursday (June 16).
“Good Grief” will fit nicely into their upcoming festival set, which includes shows at Glastonbury, V Festival, Bestival and T In The Park.
So, what would you little maniacs like to do first? Listen:
Wild World is the follow-up to 2013 LP Bad Blood, which topped the UK album chart.
