Bastille have released a new animated video for 'Survivin''

Bastille have released a new animated video for their recent 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.”

The new clip was directed by London-based British/Iranian director Reza Dolatabadi, who says: “Overall I wanted to give the video a grand feel, almost like it belongs on the big screen, and for that we had to build a city in 3D, lock all the camera angles and movements and then animate our characters over the 3D layouts.

"Animation is a teamwork. I have to say I’ve been so lucky to work with an incredible team of artists from all over the world on this project. Without their dedication and attention to details there was no way I could have finished this ambitious piece.”
