When writing a song that imagined a conversation between two ancient ashen corpses, British electro-pop band Bastille never imagined it would become the track that led them into the American mainstream music scene."Pompeii," a haunting and grandiose song of love and loss, has become London band Bastille's breakout hit, scaling the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart to a peak of No. 10 . The band most recently performed the song on NBC's comedy sketch show "Saturday Night Live". I want the song to reflect the situation and to feel quite epic on some ways, and kind of sad and optimistic.Q: How would you describe the genre your music falls into?Smith: The new tracks are potentially early versions, they might turn into something else. We just wanted to make two new songs that solidly gesture towards where we might go.
