Bastille are celebrating their time together with new single, 'Survivin''

Bastille have shared their new single, 'Survivin''.

The song is about the band's seven years together and was written before the pandemic broke out. It follows on from their recent Graham Coxon collaboration, ‘WHAT YOU GONNA DO???’.

“There’d been times when I felt like I’d been in a washing machine and on a conveyor belt at the same time,” frontman Dan Smith says of the song, “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.”

Give it a listen below.
