MIX New Music Club

Now Playing on MIX New Music Club – Survivin’ from Bastille


It seems like Bastille’s favorite thing to do is combine groovy, hopeful beats, with real, raw lyrics, and this song is no exception.  Singer Dan Smith reflects on how modern life is testing our mental health, while battling anxiety and self-doubt.  Dan explains, “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.”
