Bastille, the British indie-pop band from London, was nominated for the 2015 Best New Artist Grammy. Their album "Bad Blood" entered the U.K. albums chart at No.1 and held a spot in the top 20 for several weeks. The U.S. version of the album, featuring the smash alternative single, "Pompeii," arrived in 2013. In 2014 Jon Caramanica of The New York Times called them "a relatively toothless, relatively harmless band that takes 1980s New Romantic impulses and softens them up considerably until they resemble the overblown British soft arena-rock of the 2000s." He called their tunes "catchy," however, and described its front man, Dan Smith, as "a singer with character in his voice." Their new album, "Wild World," debuted in September 2016.
