‘An apocalyptic party record’ is what Dan Smith calls the long-anticipated new disc from Bastille, which bears the far from reassuring title Doom Days. Ironically enough, the stars seem to be in a particularly favourable alignment for this third long-player from the four Brits: the more personal the pain and the greater the sufferings of the world, the more pointedly Smith seems able to shine his intelligent light on it. A second build-up single, Happier (made last autumn with EDM producer Marshmello) exceeded Bastille’s biggest success to date, Pompeii, and makes Vesuvius look like a molehill. No one does dancing on the volcano like Bastille.
