To be honest, we thought the ‘Bad Blood’/’All This Bad Blood’ project had been put to bed, but clearly that’s not the case, with British band Bastille revealing the video for ‘Oblivion’, which is single No.7 (?) from the LP.
To be honest, we’ve never seen the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ performed quite like this before (see clip below), but then again, we can’t recall seeing a demolition derby in a video clip before. We guess it serves as a visual connection to the title of the song as the cars are crashed into vehicular ‘oblivion’.
Songwise, ‘Oblivion’ is a gorgeous ballad that serves to highlight just how sublime lead singer Dan Smith’s vocals are.
