LISTEN TO IT'S felt [...].

LISTEN TO IT'S felt like a long three years since Bastille's debut, Bad Blood.

The big haired, big-chorus loving indie boys are sticking with their core markers on Wild World: pacy pop-rock overlaid with frontman Dan Smith's distinctive, rangy vocals.

Snatches of actress Kelly LeBrock in 1985 film Weird Science break up the patter on Good Grief, while audio snippets crop up on almost every track (Send Them Off!, Lethargy, Winter Of Our Youth). It's annoying at points, but discard those interruptions you're left with a punchy, catchy blueprint that is so very Bastille.

It's not terribly nuanced, nostalgia, freedom, world news, distraction (Snakes) and political darkness are running themes but you can't deny Bastille have heart.
