Bastille – Survivin’

Written by on September 23, 2020

Release Date: Sept 22, 2020

We’re loving the breezy new single from Bastille and the colorful music video that accompany’s it. This is their second single for 2020 and follows ‘What You Gonna Do???’, the band’s collaboration with Graham Coxon

The song hits particularly hard in 2020 and as lead singer Dan Smith speaks of anxiety and self-doubt.

There’d been times when I felt like I’d been in a washing machine and on a conveyor belt at the same time but when people asked me how I was doing, the answer was always the British cliché: ‘Yep, all good, fine’. At the start of lockdown I felt very self-conscious about having written a song that felt relevant when it wasn’t intended to be, but then I also think 2020 is the year we all stopped pretending everything’s fine.
