Bastille first showed up on the madeupchart.com pop radar late last year with breakthrough single Flaws. The follow up Pompeii should see them ascend to the dizzy heights of superstardom in 2013.
The track is a carefully crafted pop gem. Hooked instantly by the Tiffany-meets-male voice choir intro, frontman Dan Smith’s beautiful vocal soon arrives to seal the deal.

Bastille also paid a visit to BBC Radio 1′s live lounge this week, performing Pompeii and a cover of Bruno Mars’ Locked Out Of Heaven.
Pompeii is out on 24 February.
