Song: Distorted Light Beam (2021)
I've said it for years, but Dan Smith (lead singer of Bastille) has one of the most underrated voices in music; his pipes are on full display in the futuristic, HVAC draped, trip of a performance. I love the message (or at least my interpretation of it) of how phones, filters, and technology have warped the lines of what reality actually is. According to Dan Smith, their message is a tad different while sort of in the same ballpark. “For us ‘Distorted Light Beam’ soundtracks dancing through some twisted, euphoric futuristic club space.”
“It’s a song about limitless possibilities – which isn’t something any of us actually have in real life right now, so it’s been fun to explore that idea while experimenting with new sounds in our music.”
