Editors’ Notes Though an indie pop band at their core, London's Bastille flirt with elements of synth-pop, classic British rock, modern R&B, and hip-hop—sometimes all at once. Talking through this playlist with Beats 1, frontman Dan Smith said, “I love a massive variety of music. Each of these different songs means something for different reasons, or inspired something, or opened my eyes to a different genre or sound.” It makes for a wild journey that hops between the uplifting dance-floor impulses of Fatboy Slim and Gorillaz, the delicate atmospheres of Simon & Garfunkel and The xx, and the boundless (re-)invention of David Bowie and Kanye West.
