Bastille on “Sound Advice with Jenna Slater” (video) + Tour Dates

Bastille, one of PopMatters' favorite new artists, recently appeared on SNL comedian Vanessa Bayer's web series, Sound Advice with Jenna Slater.

Bastille, the British epic pop sensation, made an impressive statement in 2013 with its debut Bad Blood. Following two incredible and creative cover mixtapes in 2012, Other People’s Heartache and Other People’s Heartache, Pt. 2, the band lived up to the promise hinted at by its early work, dominating world airwave with tunes like the stadium-ready “Pompeii”.

And, as it turns out, Bastille has a humorous side. The band, who is about to begin a worldwide sprint of a tour, recently appeared on “Sound Advice with Jenna Slater”, a web series hosted by SNL comedian Vanessa Bayer. The quartet’s dry humor plays nicely on Bayer’s awkward overeagerness.
