Bastille vs. Other People's Heartache Pt. III: Bastille & HAIM - "Bite Down" (Virgin Records)


"tbt after a long day at the pub, we went to sing on an untitled bastille song - now it's out and called "bite down," @HAIMtheband Tweeted along with the above photo on Thanksgiving night; seemingly unaware that Bastille had planned to unleash their Electro-laden collaboration as a pre-release single to their forthcoming [Bastille] vs. Other People's Heartache Pt. III mixtape/album. "It's always been really important to me to constantly make new music and also to collaborate with people, something we don't really do on our proper albums," frontman Dan Smith said of the feature-heavy project in a recent statement. "It was really enjoyable to make and [was] a nice way to get together with people that we like and respect and have fun with it... I love having the side lane of our mixtapes as a place where we can make music people might not expect," Smith continued. From its initial bars, "Bite Down" comes off as a vaguely Electronic-tinged, crunchy guitar-drenched Indie Rock romper, which seems to be in the same vein as the direction Bastille are looking to take on their currently in-the-works Bad Blood/All This Bad Blood (2013) follow-up. In addition to California-bred songstresses HAIM, [Bastille] vs. Other People's Heartache Pt. III is set to feature contributions from Angel Haze, Braque, F*U*G*Z, The Gemma Sharples Quartet, Grandes, Lizzo, MNEK, Rag N Bone Man, Rationale, Skunk Anansie, and Tyde. But those interested don't have to wait too long at all, because Bastille's third "vs." mixtape compilation will see a world-wide release this upcoming December 8-10th.
