[DRAMATIC POP ROCK] Whether it’s a pop song about two bodies melting together in the ash of Pompeii or a beefed-up cover of Corona’s “Rhythm of the Night,” London's Bastille adds a flare of drama to its pop songs that has helped shoot the four-piece onto the charts worldwide. That knack for theatrics often makes the sometimes simple or clichéd lyrics and song structures more interesting, as anthems build upon choir singers, booming drums and Dan Smith’s raspy wail or a floating synth that weaves its way through soft, crooning piano ballads. While the approach isn’t entirely new, one thing seems clear: Bastille knows how to make an entrance, and it doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.
