English indie-pop group Bastille released the single “Good grief” last week and have debuted the video now.
The surreal clip features a bank robbery, a burning house, gun-toting quiz show contestants, roller girls and a kitchen-sink thrown in for good measure.
Frontman Dan Smith said: “We were excited to be able to work with NYSU (Wild Beasts, New Order, Philip Selway) on the video which was shot over 6 or so days in Madrid. It is like a mad visual Rubik’s Cube that takes a load of archetypal narrative scenarios and then twists and collides them together. We wanted to make something fun and chaotic and surreal that would serve as a fittingly odd accompaniment to the song.”
“Good grief” is the first taste from the band’s forthcoming second album “Wild world”.
