Bastille Unveil New Single Survivin'

Tuesday, 22 September 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Bastille have shared a new song.

Cast across a sparse, head-bopping groove, a hooky chorus and a couple of sax flourishes, Survivin' finds vocalist Dan Smith reflecting on self-doubt.

Bastille began work on the track months before the coronavirus lockdown and intended it to be a reflection on the highs and lows of the band's existence. "There'd been times when I felt like I’d been in a washing machine and on a conveyor belt at the same time,” said Smith. "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."

Survivin' follows the band's recent Graham Coxon collaboration What You Gonna Do???, while their last album was 2019's 'Doom Days'.
