British indie pop band, Bastille have just shared their new song ‘Send Them Off’ which is their second single taken from their hugely anticipated forthcoming record ‘Wild World’.
‘Send Them Off’ opens with blaring trumpets and slows down before entering a rapturous chorus full of even more blissful horns. Frontman Dan Smith uses imagery from “The Exorcist” and “Othello” alongside quotes from the 70s Italian sci-fi film ‘Cosmos: War of the Planets’ to tell a vivid story of irrational relationship jealousy throughout the track. “Set me free from my jealousy / Won’t you exorcise my mind? / Won’t you exorcise my mind?”
Supremely catchy and euphorically groovy, ‘Send Them Off’ is just a small taste of what we’re to expect from Bastille’s new album ‘Wild World’ – which is set to drop on the 9th of September.
