Current Dork cover stars Bastille have debuted a brand new single, ‘Shut Off The Lights’.
The track is the latest taster of their forthcoming album ‘Give Me The Future’, set for release on 4th February.
“I would be lying if I said we set out to make this album,” explains the band’s Dan Smith in this month’s Dork cover feature. “We started making quite a different record; a much more sprawling album that was all about escapism. We’ve always been interested in escapism from the beginning, having songs like ‘Icarus’ ‘Laura Palmer’ and ‘Pompeii’ on our first album, which we made in a windowless basement where it was all about imagining yourself into real or fictional universes. I was really interested in the psychology of escaping and the lives we can live within our heads, and the different versions of reality that can exist. The fact that we can daydream our way out of a situation.”
