WATCH: Bastille Premieres Video for “Fake It”


“Fake It,” is an incredible new release for Bastille, whose album, Wild World, is highly anticipated. The music video features a smarmy, uncomfortable, molded politician (a commentary on the upcoming US election, perhaps?) giving a speech, at times mouthing the lyrics, and at others, showing the two-sided nature of every person. As the camera shows the man calm and poised, reality shows the man enraged and irrational. Musically, this is just such a strong song, better than “Good Grief,” in my opinion. The lyrics are attention-grabbing, and the high refrain that echoes throughout the song will have chills running down your spine. I will be playing this on repeat, allowing Dan Smith’s voice to wash over me.
