Bastille has brought America by storm with his new chart topper, “Pompeii”. The English punk-pop band started as a solo project by Dan Smith (the lead singer). Their song “Pompeii” came out over a year ago and now is topping the Billboard top 100 for 5 weeks straight in the top 10 listing. The music video is a bit creepy and uncomfortable, all the people that have been influenced by “Pompeii” now have huge black eyes and the lead singer tries to run away from the power of the leader, but doesn’t make it out without being his eyes being blackened. Bastille is scheduled to perform as a headlining band at this year’s “The Hangout Music Festival” in May and I am getting tickets and I am so excited to see this developed band perform in front of people that know more than their debut single. Twerk team, check out the band and fall in love!
