You know a song is good when you run out of the shower to grab your phone so you can Shazam it from the radio. That’s what happened to me when “Pompeii” by Bastille came on the radio while I was in Paris this summer. Water dripping everywhere, I dashed from the shower to my bedroom and back, because I couldn’t live with the idea that I would never know what song it was.

It’s ironic I had to learn about a British band while I was in France, especially since most of the bands I listen to are British. But I guess I’ve been slipping as of late. Because when I came home and looked them up, it turns out they had a show scheduled in New York already, and it was sold out! (See? I’m not a hipster!!) Ah, well.

Their album, Bad Blood, is now out in the US (it came out in the UK in March), and you should check it out. In the meantime, now you know what the song is, so you can stay in the shower (or dry, whichever you prefer 😉 )!

(Check out this awesome version in Gaelic, too!)

What do you think? Was it worth the effort I went through? 🙂 What are you listening to right now?

  1. I need to redo my iTunes ASAP. Aka: when I am not lazy. Because I have NONE of Bastille's music in my iTunes/on my iPod and that makes me very sad because it's fabulous music. Your music taste makes me happy, by the way. 😀

    • I need a new microSD card for my mp3 player so I can add more music, including their album. I have the EP, but ran out of room! Ha, and I'm glad my obsession with music can help to make you happy in any way! <3
