Even though Bastille have one studio album to their name (2013’s Bad Blood featuring the breakthrough hit “Pompeii,”) the prolific newcomers are about to release their third mixtape on Dec 10.
“Bite Down” finds the two affable rock bands sinking their teeth into a crunchy riff and an easy-going rhythm. According to Haim’s Twitter, it was recorded “after a long day at the pub” — presumably in Britain, or it would have been ” after a long day at the bar.”
