Music Thoughts: Pompeii by Bastille

“Pompeii” comes from Bastille’s UK album, Bad Blood, and their USA EP, Haunt. The backing voices singing “Eh, Eh, Oh. Eh, Oh” in the intro and the chorus give the song a catchy and interesting beat. Dan Smith’s voice has a delightful ring to it, even though he’s singing about darkness and destruction. Despite the rather grim subject matter of the lyrics, the song itself feels rather upbeat and makes for a nice listen.

The song is available to download for free from the USA iTunes store. Expired.
Bad Blood is available to purchase from Amazon.com.
Haunt is available to purchase from the iTunes store.
