Bastille Release New Video For Latest Single, ‘Shut Off The Lights’

Bastille have unveiled the official video for their latest single “Shut Off The Lights”. In the feel-good video, which made its broadcast premiere on MTV Live and MTVU, people are disconnected from their devices, unplugged from their digital “innerverses”, and forced to reconnect IRL—resulting in an infectious office dance party celebrating the importance of human connection. 
 
Dan Smith says, “We wanted to make something that reflected the euphoria and the fun of the song. The track is a moment of humanity, normality, and intimacy on the album, so a video celebrating small funny moments in the day seemed to make sense. Plus, it just makes us want to dance, so it seemed only right to get that in there too.”
 
Shut Off The Lights” is taken from Bastille’s upcoming fourth studio album Give Me The Future out next Friday, February 4th. The song has received widespread praise from BillboardClash MagazineDIYDorkEntertainment TonightNMERolling Stone UKV Magazine, and more, with Billboard proclaiming, “Bastille has not-so-quietly developed into one of the most consistent mainstream pop-rock acts working today, building their alternative-leaning songs around Dan Smith’s booming voice but shifting their focus often enough to avoid repetition,” and V Magazinedeclaring, “‘Shut Off the Lights’ might just be the highest they’ve ever gone.”
